Default Do you like to fly in airplanes?

How do you feel about traveling on airplanes? Do you get excited about the whole airport experience? Does taking off your shoes for the security check drive you insane and ruin the trip? Do you look forward to wandering around the airport during layovers and shopping at the duty free stores? Or, do you fly because it's just easier than car/boat travel?

Poll to follow!

I voted for: Flying is okay- I don't mind being on a plane, but I'm not a fan of airports.

I'd enjoy it much more if it didn't come with any hassles. I hate having to get to the airport so early and deal with lugging baggage, going through security, planning meals around flights, etc.

I've never been on a plane. I'm absolutely terrified. I think I might do it if I wanted to go somewhere badly enough, but I know I'd need to be tranquilized first lol. I'm just afraid of it crashing.

I don't like flying, mostly because I have NO control if something goes bad...and if something goes bad, I'll have so much time to panic and freak out before we crash and die...

I will fly though and I can be calm without medication, but I really prefer to take other modes of transportation when possible.

One of our clients took a Transatlantic cruise to Europe because she's afraid of flying. It takes FOREVER to get there on a cruise- like 10 days!

Okay I wouldn't do that LOL. I really want to go to Ireland someday and I'd probably suck it up and take a plane for that.

I love airports and flying is pretty cool too. (well only if the airports are "happening" airports, dinky airports not so much).

I love flying!! My parents travel a lot so airports and planes have always been a part of my life and I LOVE IT
I look forward to exploring airports and people watching and getting my reading done on the plane and I love the game of collecting points/FF miles

but I only fly to/from major cities.. I can't stand rinky dink little nowhere airports with nothing to do and that are ugly.

I love flying, I just hate all the bullshit that goes along with it. can take this, can't take those, only this big of bag, oh sir we've changed the requirements since you last flew, even though it was 2 weeks ago, new fees everytime we go somewhere, more clothes have to come off, more stuff revealed, more time to wait, etc.

But once we're on the runway and taking off, I love it.

I love going to small airports, much easier than the big ones, and I have some friends that have small planes so we go on hour or two hour flights just for day stuff on occasion. Those are the most fun to me.

I hate flying. Hate the airport. Hate being in the plane. Hate turbulence. But I'll fly in order to travel.
