Flying itself has never bothered me -- my dad was a pilot, which I think made a difference. (That said, my brother hates it, so I guess that didn't help him!)

I do think that the whole process tends to be draining. I feel like I'm almost always sleep deprived for one reason or another while traveling (and can't sleep in public), which can be tough. And there are sometimes where I just get antsy and we're not there yet!

But, generally speaking, I'm pretty ambivalent. It is what it is. I try not to get frustrated or upset about all of the annoyances because then you are screwed, lol.

I also don't like to fly because it seems other passengers don't favor group singing LOL

I love flying. Seriously, sitting on a chair... IN THE SKY. However, I hate airports. So it's a tradeoff. I'd love to fly in some smaller private craft some day.

Seeing as my dad works for an airlines, I don't have any close family, and I am in a LDR (which is about to get a LOT longer after we get married)... I don't have much of a choice but to like flying. Started at a very young age (like 6 months) and in the past 4 years I have flown upwards of 100 times or so....


The whole airport thing..... not a fan of. I would rather walk 10 miles off track then be crammed onto one of those stupid airport transit systems like a herd of cattle. Having to go through the worlds busiest airport (ATL) EVERY time I fly (it's where I live unfortunately), is a real hassle. I get there early and walk the whole way and avoid the crowds as best I can.

I don't enjoy the lineups and such at the airport. But flying itself I really enjoy. Especially on a nice sunny day I love being above the clouds- its so relaxing. Or looking down at the earth and seeing all of the patterns. I just wish they could find a way to make the planes less stale and dry.

I love flying. The plane, airports, everything. I'm the one who always wants a window seat, too. The view is spectacular. I'm not a fan of flying over water, but that's because looking out the window over the ocean is sooo boring: "Oh look! It's water.....again." I'd take airplanes everywhere if I could.

One of my old bosses lived in a pretty wealthy area on the waterfront. Their next door neighbor worked on Bainbridge Island, and he owned a helicopter that he flew every day to work. It was awesome. Except when he'd get really drunk and start buzzing people's houses. That was somewhat terrifying.

I wouldn't mind the whole airport experience if it didn't mean taking off my shoes. That's just nasty.
