Re: flying stories

On monday, Barranquilla-Bogota, MD-80, Aerorepublica, the flight attendant told us the usual .. "not to use the bathroom while the belt signal is on". Guess who entered the bathroom when the plane was making an u turn just after departing

You are more likely to get your throat slit by some nutcase than die on a plane, so i wouldnt worry about it too much. People are just too paranoid and over exagerate things, so dont listen to the few bad things that happen

Re: flying stories

Flying on a plane is safer than driving to the airport here.

You are right, I'm not afraid of flying. Well, before I went on an airplane for the very first time I had the strangest feeling ever, obviously the fear and everything was for nothing. I has become better with every single flight that I went on but after seeing plane crashes in the news the strange feeling returns and doesn't go away until I'm back home again, all sound and safe.

Yeah, you always get the careful charlies

I dont understand why people are afraid of flying to be honest, its not like if you are scared of heights you have to look out the window and look down The way people drive in some countries, you would think people would be more scared of driving
