Who's flying?

  1. Hi everyone,
    just wanted to hear if anyone else is still spooked about flying. I usually go to Cleveland twice a year to visit family but I am thinking about cancelling this time. I've never been afraid to fly but this has really gotten to me. Has anyone else cancelled travel plans?

    I'm flying to Sarasota Fl. for a conference this Saturday - I'm somewhat nervous. Actually hoped that it would be cancelled, no such luck......

    canceled my "birthday-trip" to New York, was my birthday present from friends. Just my husband and me.
    It was planned for christmas shopping and so on, but first, I don't want to leave my daughter alone.
    Then:
    I don' t like flying anyway, I am always afraid something happens, but it is the most comfortable way to go somewhere far.
    But right now, no thank you. I rather stay at home.
    And:
    Besides my husband is not allowed to leave his job now and was adviced not to fly. (He is working for the US State departement)

    I just bought my ticket for Turkey next summer. Plan on going there and then to Syria and Jordan. Our gov't has not advised against these countries. The only ones with increased warnings are Pakistan and Indonesia (Afghanistan was already on the list of no-goes). I can't wait to go!!! I'd leave right now if I could. I know that highjacking is a possibility, but it always was and that never stopped me from travelling before.
