Wasn't it just the teeniest airport you've ever seen, zone?

I hate DTW! Can't wait for NWA to finish the new terminal. A human may actually be able to walk through it!

I used to fear flying to the degree that my palms would sweat when airborne. Doesn't happen any more, though. I'm completely relaxed in the air. I've basically psyched myself out of the fear.

Statistically speaking no mode of transportation is safter than that of an airplane. How about them beans! *slaps herself for saying that...* I get airsickness all the time, so I have to take Dramamine. My suggestion to you is listen to a little U2 and take some drowsy Dramamine and you'll be there with your finace before you know it. Have fun!

blech. Detroit Metro is a crap airport. and so is LaGuardia in NYC and I had to be in both on Friday-- blech again. I was really nervous to fly this time-- first time since Sept. 11-- but it was fine. Just make sure you get there at least two hours before for security and when you're on the plane have something to do-- read or CDs or something-- to get your mind off the fact that you are indeed on a plane. Hope the flight was good to VA!

The airports were worse than the flights lately. The less likely someone is to look like a terrorist, the more likely they will search you and go through your suitcase. I saw so many elderly people with canes having their suitcases searched, and they use the same pair of gloves on each suitcase (phew, ug, and barf), and they lift up each item...underpants up in the air. And those of us in line for 2 hrs have nothing else to look at so we watch every item they hold up. I used to be so scared to fly, and I used every psych trick there is, the rubber band flicking it against your wrist, displacing negative thoughts with good ones, ad naseum. Flying to Europe for 10 hrs was hell, and it was the turbulence, each time my heart would race. I finally solved it, and it so stupid, but it works. I tried reading interesting things, books, good didn't work. Grab every tabloid there is, and take them and read them. The more mindless celebrity gossip and stupid pictures the better. The mind cannot think of two things at once, so when you become absorbed in who wore what to what premiere, you will forget all about you're on a plane. Also, use headphones and have a CD or tape that is stuff you absolutely love, the combination works. I sat next to two men who had too much to drink and were scared to death to fly, and kept saying they were, so we played the game of who has breast implants by looking at the tabloids, and they forgot they were scared.

Gee, thanks, Johnny...glad I didn't read that before I left!

I made it! Sorry I'm late posting...been too busy for the Internet!!!

My flight was actually pretty smooth...I took manda's advice and tried to enjoy myself. The flight was overbooked, but they got 5 people to volunteer to take a later flight. We were only about 20 minutes late.

I'm gonna post a more detailed thread in the main forum! With U2 content!
