I am new to this blog but I thought I would write about my flying situation as it is giving me a lot of anxiety.
I actually have two flights booked this year. The first is a two hour trip to Majorca with Monarch airlines. I am not too worried about this flight since I have flown with Monarch before and they were good. I am also aware that I will have Valium which tends to calm me for most of the two hours.
My main concern is in September I will be flying with Singapore Airlines from London to Melbourne via Singapore. I am so scared! This time I will be on my own. I hate the feeling of turbulence which I know is bound to happen on this flight because it is so long! I keep thinking the plane will go down. I don't like any movement on the plane which I know is irrational since a plane will move according to the air around it.
I really don't know what to do, it is putting me off going and I have wanted to go to Australia for years. I am so afraid of being afraid and the thought of a plane going down and being aware of that might just be too much for me to bear on such a long flight :(
I am also afraid of take off since it is so fast and noisy I wonder how the captain can possibly keep control of the plane? And what if theres a problem mid flight? Flying over the pacific means we cannot just divert to another country.
Has anyone else done this flight? Has anyone flown with Singapore airlines before?
I would really appreciate any information. Sorry for the rant!
