Hi Health, If you have a motion sickness you will surely feels dizzy and like vomiting. if you have fear of heights you will all throughour the trip feels so tensed and will not enjoy the view up there. without the two concerns--it's a light feeling. you just have to chew from time to time to release the air inside your ears as it progress due to heights and air pressure.

I feel light-headed, tired, and ready to get back on the ground. I really hate it when the turbulence gets rough and you can actually feel the plane going as fast as it does. There was this one time where the plane started shaking and all of a sudden I felt like we were running at 100 miles per hour, which we probably were and more. I was clinging to the arm rests and trying not to feel sick, but no one else seemed to notice. I really hate flying. I've flown dozens of times, and I really would choose a road trip over it. I don't care which one is statistically safer. I feel safer on the ground.

I've been on aeroplane for three times.My first experience was worst as i was flying to San Francisco,CA from Singapore.The journey took about 18 hours totally.5 hours from Singapore to Seoul,Korea and transit there.Remaining 13 hours from Seoul,Korea to San Francisco.My backside and my leg almost cramp.. First when the plane take of from the runaway..it will start moving slowly and suddenly moving so fast like turbo and you will feel as you are moving so fast and finally it will take off and will start to moving higher and higher altitude until it reaches a certain height it will continue to fly normally.

Hi healthbeauty, I felt really excited the first time while I was in a moving airplane. I's rather worried at the moment the plane lifted-off. The feeling was really amazing and hardly to express unless you get the true feeling yourself It's weird and dreadful that all the airplane tragedies I had read or seen on the tv news before would flash in my mind. Later the plane moved steadily in the air. I even couldn't feel that I was up in the sky. I had forgotten all those scary stuffs and engrossed in watching tv program as well as playing computer games. There were small lcd screens attached to the back of the seat in front of us. I enjoyed taking the beverages as well as the delicious foods served there. I hope you would have the chance to experience the genuine feeling riding on a moving airplane very soon Have a nice day

I usually feel excited, even if I'm just going back home I'll feel excited for some strange reason. There's just something about airplanes that I really like S: or it might be because I don't really take many trips abroad and I like the feeling of being on an airplane after such a long time. I have no idea.

If there's turbulence, I get travel sickness, but apart from that I don't really think about it anymore. I once started thinking about how weird it really was, 10 000 meters above Russia on my way to Japan, and then I decided it was best to go to sleep instead :-)

Traveling by plane nowadays is not as cumbersome as before. Well, of course, there had been a lot of improvements, technology wise, in building an airplane. These days, airplanes are much bigger and more stable too. In the past, when planes were smaller, there is turbulence that passengers usually feel and become jittery about. That turbulence is felt more at the tailend seats of the airplane and the feeling is like that of an earthquake, ranging from mild to strong. Now, when you take a plane. You just sit down, relax, even watch a movie. And mind you, you can watch your own movie, unlike in the past when the movie screen is common to all passengers. Also, seats are more comfortable. You can even take a stroll once the plane has reached its cruising height. There are still old planes though. Try the budget airlines, then compare it with the bigger planes of major airlines. Then, you'll know what I've written about taking airplanes.
