I agree with WILDHONEYPIE. Don't plan on going overseas again so maybe I can get away without flying.

Namaste

No, I'm not afraid to fly, but I definitely don't like the process or the environmental impact. Unfortunately, it's hard to avoid sometimes.

yes and no. I love to travel so it is the way I have to get to Europe or Africa. If there was anopther equally efficent way to travel, I would opt for that option...it just doesn't feel natural!

However I am super bummed that it is rough on my carbon footprint :(

I'm like the rest of you... exasperated, irritated but not afraid. It used to be exciting, but now it's an ordeal.

I'm convinced that quite soon, airlines will remove airplane bathrooms and charge passengers for adult diapers!

No.

"In 2008, 14,180 Americans were murdered, according to the FBI. In that year, there were 34,017 fatal vehicle crashes in the U.S. and, so the U.S. Fire Administration tells us, 3,320 deaths by fire. More than 11,000 Americans died of the swine flu between April and mid-December 2009, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; on average, a staggering 443,600 Americans die yearly of illnesses related to tobacco use, reports the American Cancer Society; 5,000 Americans die annually from food-borne diseases; an estimated 1,760 children died from abuse or neglect in 2007; and the next year, 560 Americans died of weather-related conditions, according to the National Weather Service, including 126 from tornadoes, 67 from rip tides, 58 from flash floods, 27 from lightning, 27 from avalanches, and 1 from a dust devil.

As for airplane fatalities, no American died in a crash of a U.S. carrier in either 2007 or 2008, despite 1.5 billion passengers transported."

Good evening!

Late for our question, but here I am:

Are you afraid of traveling by airplane?

I am not. I have always liked it. Nowadays i am mostly annoyed with the absurdly increased security and the lack of service in the planes... But I have never being afraid of it.
