I hate it, lol.


I hate the lines. I hate being cramped. I hate being in close quarters with people.

I enjoy it. But I typically have more patience and a higher tolerance level than most people. What I hate is driving long distance. I'd much rather fly for an hour than drive for five.

I love it. The actual experience on the plane may not be the greatest but it usually means that I am off to somewhere fun and exciting or returning from such a place.

Have an edible when you pass through security. Flying will become a hilarious social experiment. Also, never battle to get on the plane first. Line up last as apathetically as possible; the people who enter the airplane first has a flight that will last 30 minutes longer. =P

Of course! Flying is inevitable but I hate it.


Great time when I'm off the plane though

Well, commercial aviation didn't even exist until about 100 years ago. Think about the alternative back then.

Not even the richest person in the world could take off in an airplane and fly at 35,000 feet to any destination in the world that he wanted. Yet, common people are doing this routinely today.

So, I am in no position to complain.

I really don't mind it at all.

I take public transportation as my main mode of transportation and grew up in NYC/ have always lived in fairly crowded cities though, so I may have a higher threshold for some of the annoyances associated with it.

Put me in business and I don't care about the length of the flight and I don't care about delays.

Flying YES!!


Being a passenger, It's Not to bad. I enjoy the trip, and being a passenger is just part of the adventure...

It has its moments. I can feel my BP go down once I get past the TSA- before that, it's a giant unknown that may cause me to miss my flight (although I arrive neurotically early). I also get wound up when a flight is delayed repeatedly, especially if I have a connection to make.

Once I'm on my way, though, especially if it's a Window seat an if it's in Business Class with an adult beverage in my hand- yes, I enjoy that part. There are also a few lounges I like- was VERY impressed with the Polaris lounge at ORD. The good ones are an oasis of calm. Some of the others are starting to resemble bus stations.
