Sorry, I'm sure this is so annoying. I used to live in Japan as a child and regularly flew back and forth. For whatever reason, I've developed this fear as an adult. And, now with my kids I get terrified. But I want them to travel the way I have...
I appreciate any words of encouragement and understand that the media are assholrs abx probably blew everything out of proportion.

Instead of engaging you in this, I’ll just refer you to the answers you got when you asked almost this same question just over a year ago. :rolleyes:

ecam is correct with his reply. No need to rehash something that you already discussed.

You should hire a Limousine instead. Or take southwest.
