I voted Yes- I love the whole airport/airplane experience and look forward to it!

I flew 5-6 times from when I was 2 years old to 4 years old. Dad was in Germany for the Army and mom & I flew to the states a lot to visit family then my sister was born and then she had an infant and toddler on a plane lol

I flew to San Antonio, TX a couple of years ago and was SCARED TO DEATH lol I white knuckled the seat til we got up in the air. The guy beside me said "First time flying?" I said "No but its been about 16 years since I flew and I am scared" He laughed and said "I'm here if you need me. I have bubble gum if you want some." He was VERY nice. He was some kind of sports writer from San Antonio that was on his way home from Atlanta after a conference.
Then when we were landing and there I was white knuckling the seat again LOL

But after I got off the plane I was like "WOW that was fun! Lets go again!" I had just watched Snakes On A Plane before I went on the plane and I think it freaked me out lol.

But I loved flying and I wish I could fly again soon. And a lot of people get anxiety when having to deal with just the airport but I loved that too.

Lol I remember one time we went to Florida for my FIL's 60th birthday surprise party. This ended up being the last time we flew.

Our flight home was at 7 am. We got on the plane and I am freaked out. Finally we get up in te air and they come around to take drink orders. Hubby asks "what do you want to drink". I gave him the DUH look and said "whiskey and diet coke". He looked totally shcoked and was like "Tanya... It's 7 am.". My answer? "yeah... I am aware. It's 7am and I am on a frickin airplane.... I am having a drink. Time does not matter 10,000 or so feet in the air". LOL

The steward came to us and asked what we wanted and I blurted out... WHISKEY AND DIET PLEASE!!!! He just started laughing and said "nervous flyer huh?". Made me laugh and I just said "you guessed it. Now tell me, this isn't the first time you've had someone order alcohol at 7am right?". "oh heck no... Happens ALLLLLLL the time". LOL

Alcohol has a more severe effect 10,000 feet in the air too lol

I've never actually ordered alcohol on a plane, now that I think about it. Coming home from Italy we flew Air Canada, where alcoholic beverages are complimentary, but I had contracted some norovirus in Egypt and didn't feel up to drinking, so I didn't even take advantage of it!

I am a big fan of booze at high altitudes. We did martinis or something at a 9k foot summit once.

Next time, I'm flying Air Canada LOL

The sports writer that sat next me on the way to San Antonio ordered a beer, I think, and it was like $8 or $9. I was like holy sh!t. I can go to a bar and get one for half that lol
