I've never been on a plane long enough to go to sleep.My first flight was from JFK in NY to Heathrow in the UK. It was a 7 hour flight and I was petrified. What I did was booked the Red Eye flight that left JFK at midnight. I stayed up all day long so that I was exhausted by the time the flight took off. I was scared when I boarded the plane but as soon as we took off, I got a pillow and blanket. The next thing I remembered was being woken up by the announcement that we were landing. I did the same thing going back to JFK.
I guess that is what always worries me even though I have not been on a plane yet. I guess the key is to just knock any bad thoughts out of your head and enjoy the flight. They still say flying is the safest form of transport despite all the terror related problems in the past.I've flown several times in my life on an airline. It makes me very nervous thinking what if the plane might crash?
