These reasons along with disaster is why I never fly.  I hate it very much.  I'm driving to CT, 750 miles soon as I always do. And I am drive 750 miles to Port Canaveral.  Sure I'm limiting myself but it's worth it to me... Just don't care for flying after a 747 I was on in the 70s over the pacific plunged 10,000 ft.

I went through an extended period of time where I hated it and even had a panic attack on a flight once that was not a happy day.  I finally forced myself to get over it because I had no choice... I've probably only had a couple bad flights since luckily....

This was back in the late 80s and the stewardess alerted the captain and then brought me bottles and bottles of champagne splits.  I was met by someone from the airlines when I got off and drunkenly assured them I was fine ... no more panic... THAT would not happen in today's day and age!!!!!

The risk they took in giving me so much alcohol still amazes me.

Isn't that what was called a first date?

Contrary to many - I LOVE flying. Earlier life I used to fly three time a week for over a year. First class ALL the time, pampered - I liked it. Top tier on two airlines.  So long ago.

 

Now coach class all the time, but I still love flying. The thrust of the engines at take-off. The thought of so much weight being lifted off the ground just because of the power of the engines, shape of the wings, and the differential pressure on the top of the wing surface compared to the bottom of the wing surface. Engineering excitement! Thanks to the Wright brothers and others - we have planes that can fly half way around the world. Flights that require two flight crews. And peanuts!! 

 

An airport is within 10 minutes of me. Almost every night when I go to work, there are cars parked at an area outside the airport where people can watch planes taking off, and landing. Fascination! Excitement! LIFE!!!!  Flying is akin to being immortal. And for a small nominal fee - we can be immortal. If only for 43 minutes or so.

#21 probably gets me the most. Standing at baggage claim with your space identified as 'YOUR SPACE'.  Then the baggage comes out and no less than six people jump in front of you to grab their bag -- oops, not theirs, throw it back on the conveyor. Repeat - except YES, it is theirs.

 

And I am standing near the end of the carousal Not the very front. GRRRRRRRrrr!

Tried to cut and paste #8 but the word that rhymes with cart and starts with an F made it say that it detected profanity ... seriously ,,, so I have repasted ...

 

8. The only acceptable place to ?art on a plane is when you are walking through first class on the way to coach.
