Don't worry at ALL! I have been flying since I was a baby, and I've been on more than 40 round trip flights, some lasting really short, like an hour; some lasting about 5-6 hours; and some lasting as long as 12 hours! I, to tell you the truth, hate planes, but NOT because it's scary... it isn't. I just get bored. But I love airports! They are so fun, IDK why! You get free drinks on the flight, and sometimes a free snack. There is usually a movie playing, and sometimes everybody each gets a personal TV! It's awesome!Check you flight to see if there are any movies/person TV's. If there aren't any personal TVs, no movies, or it the movie playing is one you don't like, make sure to bring a laptop or iPod/Pad if you have one to load movies/TV shows on! I'm going on a flight soon and I'm loading a bunch of Modern Family episodes onto it! So yeah, don't be worried!

Hey Madison, don't be scared of them. They're just peope. Who cares if they don't believe you, your true friends won't desert you. And don't be scared of confrontation. You say your thoughts and say what you really think about their opinion. Because people will like you so much better if you stand up instead of back down. If you need help on doing that, I'm here to help! I am the master of standing up to popular kids! ;)

TRUST ME. There is NOTHING to be afraid of. The worst thing about flying is that (for me) it takes FOrEveR to get where im supposed to go. SO just bring stuff to entertain yourself and you'll be perfectly fine!!!

When we went to Orlando,in November, it was hott. so i would pack for any kind of weather. sometimes it would be hot, other times cold. Have fun, especially at Universal Studios
by Prep4Life on 3/13/2011 5:54:30 PM
A couple years ago, my family and I flew to Europe. The flight felt like forever but I brought a bunch of stuff to entertain myself (2 books, i-pod, string for bracelets, etc). You'll be fine girly!

Plus, put your toiletries and stuff in a clear ziploc plastic bag. If it spills, you won't have a big mess to clean up.

I've been flying since I was about 2, I love it!!!!I especially love going overseas. I usually just bring a small backpack on the flight with me, with stuff like gum, mp3 player, a sleeping mask, earplugs, stuff to keep busy with, magazines, books, other stuff...
by monkeygal22 on 3/12/2011 7:26:21 PM

Don't worry about the plane! You sound EXACTLY like I did before I went on my first plane ride a few months back (and I'm 14, if that makes you feel any better!) I was shaking for the 1st part of the day at school before we left for the airport! But the airplane ended up being one of my FAVORITE parts of the trip to Florida!!! Try to get a window seat too! I packed a bunch of stuff in my carry on, but I really didn't use much of it, I just looked out the window the whole time as for the ear popping, by the end of the trip I taught myself how to yawn on command, which really helped @ takeoff & landing! Gum works too, I brought my fave flavor and it helped a lot! The earpopping isn't that bad though. I'm sure you will have so much fun! Be sure to look out the window because the view is absolutely AMAZING!!! Have a blast chica!!

I've been on a plane 4 times, flying isn't bad at all!
by caitlingirl1997 on 3/12/2011 12:09:30 PM
ive never even been on a plane before
by Alle93 on 3/12/2011 11:56:34 AM
Flying isn't bad at all! The workers at the airport r really nice, and the flight is fun if you have tunes, reading, puzzles, drawing, ect. I used to worry about getting air-sick, and the stress of that would make me sick, so just relax. I have been flying since I was 9 weeks old.
by spicyllamachick2120 on 3/12/2011 11:12:10 AM
Just be warned that sometimes the gum and swallowing doesn't work for ear popping. I've flown several times, and each time the gum nor swallowing works for me. Then as we land, my ears pop really loud and then 'clog up' or whatever, and I can't hear a thing for several hours after the flight!! xD
Then suddenly it goes away. It's very strange. Don't be scared, it's just the body's natural reaction to the air pressure change. Brittany G.

Hey! ive gone flying many times! make sure you bring some things to do on the plane but don't over pack. hope you have fun!
by taylorswiftfan1236 on 3/12/2011 9:25:38 AM
Flying is totally ok, I have been flying since I was practically born!! In your carry on, be sure to pack fresh underwear and maybe a shirt and sweatpants, just in case your luggage gets lost (chances are very rare, but it happened to me once). If you have contacts, BRING A CASE AND SOLUTION.
Also, don't bring any liquids over three oz. into the airport (like from your car), because you will have to throw it away when you go through security. BUt you can by stuff past security that is over 3 oz. that you can bring on the plane. And, bring some really good gum, it keeps your ears from popping and nice to have if you get bored and want to do something with your mouth. (just don't smack) Flying is fun, so don't be scared!!
