Simple topic. But seriously, do people even LIKE it? Or is it just seen as a necessary evil to get from point A to point B?
I absolutely hate it. I was so excited the first time I got to fly (and that was a month ago) but it was not what I expected. Uncomfortable seats, loud engine noise, nausea and leftover motion sickness that lasted for several days. And yes, I puked on the plane. There actually came a point that I hoped we would just hurry up and crash just so I could be put out of my misery.
My fiance and sister have both flown and while neither suffered the same sickness I did, both don't care for it. Neither do my parents. In fact, now that I've stopped to think about it, I haven't met a single person who does like it.
Still waiting for flying saucers with their fancy stabilized internal gravity to become the new form of travel.

I don't mind flying, and I have done a fair bit of it over the years , in both planes and helicopters. Long haul in the cheap seats is a pain, especially if you are on the taller or broader side. The part that I find the worst is all the stuff you have to go through these days just to get in your seat. The security checks take ages, there never seems to be enough personnel at the check points, so you have to get to the airport hours in advance of your flight taking off. Getting through customs and immigration at the other end can also be a pain. The actual flying on the whole doesn't bother me. I even actually quiet like the feeling of leaving the ground. I don't suffer from travel sickness like you, so that probably helps. However, if you think travel sickness is bad, wait until you get blocked sinus problems from the pressure in the cabin, it will make you feel like your head is about to explode.
You sound like me, once upon a time.
Then I got a conscience. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...
