This is my first blog! My name is Lynne and in a couple of months time I will be flying from Manchester to Barbados. Most people would be over the moon but already I am starting to have sleepless nights. Its not that I havnt flown before (and I have been to Barbados twice before) but because of a couple of bad experiences I am getting myself into a state that this will happen again.

Hi Keith - remember me Jelly? I'm off to Jersey again.

Dear Keith,

Its nice to be back on here again.

I managed a flight to Jersey in 2007 with your help and Phoebe's too.

Well, looks like I am off there again in the Summer. We are looking at flights from Gloucester Airport.

There is a prop plane called a Dornier 228D and I am unsure about how the flight may be on one of those?

Is a small airport as good as a… Continue

flew safely

Hi Keith et all

I flew to Ireland on Thursday, back yesterday from Bristol with Ryanair and it was fine. I didn't really enjoy the flights though so a bit disappointed about that, when we took off on Thursday the plane climbed quite steeply, which I didn't like much, although it was perfectly safe, and then the seatbelt sign came on after it had gone off when we'd levelled out, which I panicked about a little, so i asked the hostess why, and they said something about wheeling the hot…
