I am 29, and for my 30th Birthday in July, I have been informed a flight to Barcelona (from Gatwick) has been arranged, which is very nice, and there is no getting out of it!! I'm well scared, I should have travelled when I was younger to prevent this from happening! Basically, the flight is 2 hours. Will there be turbulence? Is that similar to bieng on a rough ferry trip? (Which I am fine with) Will I get sick? Should I look out the window or just sit there watching the clock get closer to the end of the flight? All my friends are saying there's nothing to it and I will end up wondering what I was worried about. What do you reckon? Thank You all!!!
It is very safe - I highly doubt you will get sick - there may be a temporary down/up sensation due to turbulence or an air pocket but you might not have any at all, just smooth sailing - look out the window when comfortable and enjoy the view and so you'll have memories - your friends are right, you'll end up saying 'what was I worried about' - rest assured your Captain up front is very sharp and competent... will ensure he/she gets home to the family safely also and air traffic is watching for your safe passage - maybe chew some gum to keep the ears clear...pressure changes...normal - RELAX, have a great trip and come back and tell us here how it went !!
gd luck. enjoy your journey.it will be very gd time for you there and you will remember this for years.its safe.just don't get scared and follow the rules wot they give in flight,like fastening the belts or so. 2 hrs will go so fast. I had my first flight of abt 21 hrs with my daughter 1 yr old.I was so excited and loved to see out the window.keep the small cam with you and take the picts too of clouds. you will enjoy it definitely. just be confident and bold , nothing will happen.
