I am a person who never traveled on an airplane. I am going to travel soon. Some say that a person travels on airplane will have dizziness and may vomit. Is it true?

the first time i rode an airplane... i got dizzy and felt sick. but i never really vomitted. purely psychological i think. it's actually more like riding a bus. yes... that's the exact feeling. when u do ride one, be sure to bring earplugs with u. coz u'll go deaf because of the air tight pressure in the plane.

Yes, yes. I also heard something like that. The crew members of the airplane increases the pressure inside the airplane so that outside pressure equals. Is that so? Thank you.

I don't believe in such perception. If you have motion sickness, then, you will surely get dizzy and then vomit. I have traveled through the plane more than ten times since I was a kid. I don't know, I just love the scenery below and how they look so little.

I am very worried about my first air travel. I donot have any motion sickness like thing, but people make me fear. Thank you for giving me confidence.

There is such a thing as motion sickness, but in the 25 times I've flown on a plane, I've never seen it happen. There's nothin to worry about. :]

Everyone feels different when flying. Less than one per cent of people suffer from air sickness. This may be dizziness followed by vomiting. Luckily I have only suffered this once and that was on a bumpy flight to Tunisia. All the other times I have flown I have not been sick. I had my first flight to Greece in 1987 when I was 14. I got terrible ear pain on landing due to problems with the pressure in my ears. Then I went partly deaf for up to one hour after landing. I learned to do exercises to release the pressure in my ears. Then in 1997 I was given a pair of ear planes, plastic screw like things, that I put into my ears. It stopped all my ear pain and now I take a pair with me when ever I fly. I suggest getting a window seat to see out the plane. I hope that you will enjoy flying.

Flying wouldn't be as popular as it is if the experience made people sick on a regular basis.If you don't get travel sick on the roads,it probably won't affect You..cabin pressurisation of the air can make your ears pop..bring some gum or boiled sweets to eat during takeoff to avoid this,or yawn when you feel the air pressure affect your ears...Safe Trip!
