• Are airplanes safe nowadays?

    Best answer: I've been on Lufthansa planes. Their planes are nice. I've also been on QANTAS, Virgin, Jetstar, etc. Some planes used today are more then 20yrs old. It's because they are so good, so safe, and get regular strict maintance. There's a variety of planes each company uses. Look at your plane ticket, it... show more

  • Is 30 minutes enough time to catch a connecting flight?

    Best answer: Theoretically, yes, since Delta will allow you to book that. That being said, 30 minutes is really pushing it, especially if you have to get from one end of the airport to the other. You can go to Delta's website and see what gates those flights normally tend to arrive and depart from. If both flights are... show more

    That being said, 30 minutes is really pushing it, especially if you have to get from one end of the airport to the other. You can go to Delta's website and see what gates those flights normally tend to arrive and depart from. If both flights are Delta Connection flights (on regional jets), then they will probably be close together, especially in SLC. If one is a Delta Connection flight and the other is a mainline flight, the chances of the gates not being close is greater.

  • Would California to Texas be considered long distance?

    I have a friend who lives in Los Angeles California I live in Ohio. But I want to move to Texas to be closer to them. Would that still be considered long distance? Even though it only takes 3 hours to get from Los Angeles to Texas on a plane.

  • First airplane ride? Quite Scared?

    I'll be going on my first flight on June 20th; it is a 5 hour overnight flight. I'm not scared about crashing, I am aware of how safe airplanes are in terms of transportation.

    I'll be going on my first flight on June 20th; it is a 5 hour overnight flight. I'm not scared about crashing, I am aware of how safe airplanes are in terms of transportation. The only thing I'm worried about is vomiting. I haven't thrown up in almost 8 years and I don't want to soon. Im scared for take-off, since people have told me its similar to roller coasters (i hate roller coasters). I get motion sickness, yet I have always taken dramamine for long bus rides and have been perfectly fine. I'm worried about that "drop" in the stomach feeling and turbulence. What does turbulence feel like? Do you think ill get sick if I've gone on a lot of bumpy and curvy bus rides before and have not gotten sick? I feel like I'm more nervous than excited, since I did not think id be flying anytime soon. Im also worried about feeling that I'm at an angle and as if im on a rocketship heading for space. Im worried about the plane going really fast (obviously it will). Any tips to feel more comfortable? My only worry is puking or getting dizzy, I trust dramamine and it has always worked for me in tough situations but I was talking to two people yesterday and they said it did not work for them and they always ended throwing up.

  • I know a lot of things about airplanes. But I m still scared of flying!!! help!!!!?

    Best answer: Chances are your flight will have no incident. There are approximately several thousands of planes in the sky at any given time, why should your flight be unlike the rest? It's just like the others. And the others are going to land safely. You hear of car accidents all the time, but a plane incident like once... show more

It's just like the others. And the others are going to land safely. You hear of car accidents all the time, but a plane incident like once every year. Even then, the plane didn't crash. It just had to land. Chill, hope you enjoy your flight

  • Why is vacation so much work I feel like I can't relax?

    Best answer: Yeah, the saying 'I need a vacation from my vacation' isn't for nothing.

    'Staycation' is probably a lot more relaxing/lounging.

    I'm going on a trip to New York next week, and for whatever reason, my family decided to fly rather than drive, even though it's only like 8 hours away, and i'm absolutely terrified!!! Now, oddly enough, i've flown multiple times before. Once for 17 hours from the US to Cambodia, and survived it, but it was pretty rough. My fear, is there are multiple things that could go wrong. Like what if the plane just breaks, and plummets out of the sky. What if it's struck by lightening and a wing burns off or something. SOOOO many scary scenarios. They say flying is safe, but was it safe for those people who were in the few accidents??? How do we know, I won't be the next, "rarity"??? What in what number will I be next??? I'm sure the people who have been in plane crashes, were told multiple times, that it'd be ok..... I'm even more worried with this trip, cause so far, everything leading up to this trip has gone wrong in some way, so how do I know that isn't fate trying to stop me from going??? Is something going to happen?? I'm super paranoid, and scared to death, so any advice from frequent flyers would be amazing. Thank you!!
