Don't feel the same about planes now
I have become a "white-knuckle" flyer when for decades I was flying fine.
Is this a part of aging? Has this happened to any of you ?
However after my return from Phnom Penh to El Salvador, in Sept with a stopover in Honolulu & a transit through LAX where Homeland Stupidities Fascist, rent-a-cop goon squad, the TSA, subjected me to the NUDE scan, I shall NEVER fly through another US airport again
Since retiring I'm flown thousands of miles, in our first years we did a rtw 12 month trip and did almost 50,000. I still hate flying and get nervous just before but don't take pills.
I have a routine I listen to music to start with and then read.
In fact I fly tomorrow Friday from Heathrow for a 3 month trip with 8 flights.

That must be it, same happened last year DFW-ANC, ah well have completed my bucket-list of visiting all 50 states & can fly to Canada direct from SAL, anywhere in Europe or Asia via Havana, NZ or OZ via SA & can bus into the US.

I seem to attract my share of drunks and "characters", the result being i only sit on the aisle now so i can get away.
Last flight, i was stuck in a row (middle seat empty) with a guy who was hopped up on something, listening to music with no headphones and looking at porn. PORN! on his laptop.
