Air Strike

Well here I am visiting again looking for reassurance.... 3 years ago I joined this site and it has really helped me each time I've flown.

I'm due to fly Edinburgh to Gran Canaria on Saturday & have just read that Ryanair have cancelled 26 flights today using French airspace as have other airlines due to the strike by French air traffic controllers which is scheduled to last 6 days!

I was feeling ok & focussing on the destiantion but now I'm visualising the fear  & panic I will suffer if I get to the airport & the flight is delayed or cancelled!

Thank you French airport workers! I only hope the dispute is over before Saturday.... did this not happen last year & the year before?!

Well done! Hope you had a great holiday. What were the flights like?

You sound pretty in control. I also hope you have a good flight (even though Keith says we're not supposed to hope for stuff, hehehe.)

And nice weather too! Enjoy it! The weather is foul here - grey and rainy and more like what I think of UK weather.

I guess you're on the plane now. You'll be great :)

Air France is as relevant to you now as the fact that I stubbed my toe 5 minutes ago.

Sounds like you've got all your strategies in place. Pills, gin... yeah maybe leave the gin (gin is evil, I can't drink it at all! It makes me cry.) But hypnotherapy sounds good. Just remember to breathe and relax and think logically.

And have a great holiday!

I'll be watching your flight from my computer (I'm at work at the moment and sooooooo bored.)

Take care

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you. Not for the flight, I know that'll be fine, but just that you'll be able to get through this fear. Let me know the flight number and I'll sit with flightradar on my computer and watch you (work is boring this week.)

Have you tried calling Keith for some help? Nothing to lose, right?

Try to let your panic rise now, then work on breathing through it. Get your husband to help you as much as he can. I totally believe you can do this. It's safe, and you'll see your children again (aren't they going with you?) Have a good holiday!

Hi, First may I apologise  if who have waited a while for me to welcome you aboard. I have so many things to answer and to try and keep in touch with that a important job such as saying 'Welcome' unfortunately gets neglected.

Thanks for joining us on this the internet’s biggest  social network for fearful flyers.
Please don’t hesitate to ask me anything you need to know about. I will always give you honest answers, and I hope that I will be able to explain flying in a way that is accurate, helpful and interesting to you.
Please post your stories, videos andpictures to encourage others to share your successes and to encourage them when they need support.
We’ve got a lot of help and information on our website (flyingwithoutfear.com) and our shop has all the help you’re ever likely to need (Book, CD, DVD, Guide, Audio Courses).

I know that you will think that the longer you leave addressing your fear the better it will be for you. In fact the opposite is true. Look around the site and on this forum I can promise you that you will not uncover something that will make you more nervous than you are now. This site is written in a way to help you to overcome your fear.

We’re here to help you
Best wishes...and it would help everyone if you could add your location
to the map (but only if you want to...it's your choice...it's your
social network)

I sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo want to go abroad in the summer so I'm looking at a train from Edinburgh to Dover, ferry Dover to Calais, train Calais to Lille! Why can;t I jus get on a plane & fly for 3 hours to Majorca?! I soooooooooooooooooooooo frustrate myself ( & husband!)

I flew in October 2008 after completing Virgin Flying without Fear course but had 2 aborted landings coming into Edinburgh airport from Lanzorote & had to land in Glasgow. All my hard work was undone & I'm back at square one!
