Another Successful Flight- The Mishaps were at ground level!

Flew from Belfast International to Iceland and back last weekend.  Outgoing an early morning flight the return flight late evening so not so much to see.

We arrived in Iceland too early to book in to our hotel so we were taken on a short tour.  Our first stop was at a Visitor/Tourist Centre of some description.  I went downstairs to use the toilets.  The lighting was quite dim and I accidentally walked into a water fountain which was practically at a level with the floor.  Apart from…

Hi Everyone

I survived a trip to Bali!  I was so terrified before I left, the usual sensations, irritability, feelings of impending doom, loss of control, sleepless nights and panic attacks.  As a nurse, I can identify what is happening to me, and I can also identify the pattern of what is happening, but I cannot control it.  I even make sure I clean up my affairs so that if I die on the plane its all in order.  

So, in order to stay sane, I found Captain Keith…

First flight in 7 years.

Well after 7 long and depressing years of avoiding holidays, I've bitten the bullet and I'm going on holiday in just over a week. I've handled the thought of the plane quite well so far, but to be honest it feels quite surreal. Nerves are starting to kick in now, but I've had enough of my fear holding me back. It's nice to read everyone's positive experiences and it'd be nice to know I'm not on my own!

Captain Keith phone call.

Hello Captain Keith, thank you for returning my call when I was at the airport today. The technical fault (eek!) was dealt with sooner than expected and we were hurried onto the plane, so I missed your call. I haven't flown for 10 years until 3 weeks ago when we flew to Lanzarote, but had to return after a couple of days as my Mother-in-law sadly died. We flew back today to start our holiday again. Over the past 40 years I have tried everything including the BA fear of flying course, which… Continue

Hi everyone, I'm new on here, but someone calling themselves Amelia Herbert has infiltrated the group. It's one of those scams asking you to allow her to put money into your bank account. I'm sure you're all wise enough not to fall for it, but I was contacted by 'her' through this group. I don't know how to contact the admins to let them know.
Take care,

Heathrow to Barcelona on Saturday

Hi All,

Just posting about my little family's upcoming trip to Barcelona on Saturday (returning from Madrid the following Saturday). I'm extremely apprehensive as I haven't flown for 2 years and when I did I had a level 10 (!) panic while waiting to taxi. To be fair, that was the outbound portion and I did manage to stay in touch with reality on the return. I'm also nervous about travelling back on the 767 aircraft which my mind is telling me is 'old' (and of course about to fall…

Another Flight Coming up 19 April 14

Fly to Iceland from Belfast International with Jet 2 on 19 April returning 21st.  Always good to check in her first!  Thankfully haven't suffered from the normal anxiety which would have started by now!

Must look up the flight path - I have found this a great help along with taking a window seat.  It helps to make flying normal for me.  I dare say I will have a few twinges before I travel but I have discovered I have those apprehensions by whatever method I travel.  I will be driving…
