    3 tips I must give if you are nervous on the plane:

    1. take chewing gum because your ears will get blocked- can be cured by yawning.
    2. Take to do, because you will be very bored, preferably not a book if you get car sick easily.
    3. Take a salty snack if you feel sick, and because airline food is expensive and cr*p!

    I can't wait to fly again I can't believe I was so nervous for my first time. I couldnt hear engines as I was sat exactly where you board the plane at the front next to the exit , at the back on the way back we were a row in front of the last row so was a bit noisy. Take off is my favourite part I love it

    And I am back home in Scotland!

    Last nights flight was a lot smoother than the first. My boyfriend's ears were fine this time thankfully.

    Flying at night was soo much better. It was really cool looking at all the lights from the cities below

    Thanks everyone for your posts. You all helped me remain calm on my first flight
    glad you made it back home safely!

    Some people like planes, others don't. All passenger aircraft come with a team of very friendly, well most of the time cabin crew (air hostess). They do security checks and secure the aircraft before passengers board to make sure everything is safe before flight. They will do the safety demonstration and point of the exits, give information of life jackets and oxygen masks. They then during the flight offer meals and drinks and other things you can buy will be highlighted in your in flight magazine.
    The flight may go through turbulence and the landing can be quite rough or 'hard' -> this is normal and is nothing to be concerned about.

    I fly back home tonight at 8:10pm. I have had an awesome time in Iceland but I am really glad to be heading back today, I miss my cats too much now haha

    I'm still gonna hate take off but I will have a few JDs and coke before the flight lol

    On the flight here, my boyfriend's ears popped so bad during landing that he thought he burst his eardrums and was almost screaming in pain. I have never heard of people experiencing that on a plane :O I know your ears pop, but nothing like that. I never noticed mine kept popping until I swallowed and could hear better again.
    I had that exact same problem when I was landing in New York last year, so I'm just hoping it doesn't happen when I go to Iceland next week!!!!

    Anyone bothered by turbulence, next time you're travelling by car or bus, picture yourself in a aircraft.

    All the G-forces you are experiencing even on a pretty smooth road with the car accelerating and decelerating, going round bends or over bumps in the road, all that would be considered turbulence sufficient for the pilot to swich on the fasten seatbelts sign if it was in a plane.

    But all that doesn't bother you in a car...
