Tips for Nervous Fliers

Jump to last reply

In today's newsletter, Fodor's has included an article that makes suggestions for nervous fliers.

Do you love travel, but dread flying? And if so, what do you tell yourself to get on the plane in the first place? And for those that just love flying...can you capture in a few words why it's so wonderful...maybe a mantra of sorts that could be adopted by the fearful..

I have a friend that suffers severe anxiety before flights. I always struggle to think of the right thing to say to make her feel better about it. Any advice?
