I respect the technology, but I hate and fear being in them ever since experiencing some horrific turbulence in my very first flight which was apparently VERY unusual. There was some freak Las Vegas heat wave that created some nightmare thermals or air pockets or something and the plane would feel like it was falling out of the sky for a few seconds before recovering and it would happen like 20 times total and I wanted to die. Then there wasn't enough room on the runway so the plane had to circle around and it happened more.
I HATE FLYING. Really cool technological marvel that I can appreciate from the ground, though.

You'd hate turboprops then.
They have a lower ceiling so they're more effected by the atmosphere

I find flying very unpleasant, I'm not afraid of it but it feels unhygienic and tiring to me and unlike a lot of people I have a hard time sleeping while on a plane.

free beer and wine? wtf
usually those are extra

Same, because I live in Australia flying to most places is a huge hassle. Not only does the flight itself take a long time but then you need to take connecting flights which can have you wait for half a day in an airport and then wait again in a second airport.

>>2527
I think it depends on how long your flight is. Most of my flights gave free alcohol apart from a flight on a smaller plane from London to Marseille that did not. I don't really drink alcohol but I had some baileys on one flight.

Porter is one of those rare airlines which offers something a bit better than economy class while obviously being economy.
But that said, most regional flights(under two hours) offer beer service.

In a few days taking two regional distance flights into Toronto then to Newark on Porter so I'm gonna get 2x the beer and 2x the snacks for 100$ cheaper than I would if I took Air Canada.

Planes are just flying death cages that you get in and hope don't kill you as your life is in its hands for however long the flight lasts.

Greendot is better because he shows that a lot of these just wind up being incidents that cause injury rather than catastrophe

 No.2633

Flying isn't so bad once you get over the fact that your life could end at any second... Also alcohol helps, and being served warm peanuts. And having a lot of leg and sitting room with nice salad+pasta

>>2589
I just get what I'm familiar with, works out fairly well. Got irish cream & coffee.

One thing that I can appreciate about flight is how when looking down you can see the nice and organized structure of development on land. Like it's all a bunch of blocks with their own purposes.
