Re: Fear of Flying Post Germanwings Crash--Increased, Decreased or Unchanged

I hate heights and swore I would never fly. However, one of my closet friends moved from PA to Florida and said if I wanted to see her I'd have to go there. This was 20 years ago, I booked a flight and went by myself to see her. Glad I did as she died a few years ago. Wouldn't do it again for love nor money. Seems to be more loony people nowadays. Drunken pilots, unruly passengers, badly maintained planes and this is on top of terrorists etc. Unfortunately when I went I also had 3 kids behind me kicking my seat all the way. Grandparents were across the aisle paying no attention. I figure if I were meant to fly God would have given me wings. lol
