LOVE flying. All of it. When I leave on Wednesday, my SIL was like "you MAY have to take the early shuttle when I go to work and have to spend six hours at the airport" and I was all

I love people watching at the airport. It's so fascinating. Everyone has different places they're going. Families, businesspeople... so fun.

Flying itself is pretty boss too. I love the excitement of taking off and landing. The in-between part can get a little boring and sore, though.

I've never been on a plane. Not because of any fear... just because I've never had a reason to get on one LOL

I predict my biggest issue, if I ever fly, will be being in close quarters with that many people for however long. I'm not good with people. haha

The thing that excites me most about flying is knowing I'm so close to my destination!

I can't wait to get on a plane next week

I hate flying. I will go on one if necessary to go someplace that's important to me. But what I hate most is the excrutiating, stabbing pain I get in my ears upon descent. It's so extreme that I dread flying. I've tried all the recommended tricks and nothing makes a hill of beans of a difference. I also hate the TSA and I refuse to be treated like a criminal, groped, x-rayed, and otherwise tormented and exposed to radiation when I haven't done anything suspect. As far as the excitement thing...yes, I kind of like when it first takes off down the run way and begins it's ascent. It certainly crosses my mind about the possibility of some disaster...a crash, but I don't usually let that get the better of me, so that's not a huge issue. So, yeah...I avoid flying unnecessarily.

I love flying so much!!! I wish I could afford to do it all the time. I'd also like my own private aeroplane so I wasn't surrounded by people being sick and babies screaming!
