Ever met someone who told you that they'll never fly and that their fear of the skies is on that will leave them having to choose between a train or car the next time they want to travel?
Of course, you have.
These people have dwindled in the last decade as flying often is viewed as the safest form of travel, mostly because unlike driving you don't run into hundreds of thousands of cars in the course of a month while you're commuting to work, but also the 10 hours or so you're on the road as you're heading to the beach for the summer vacation that is equal parts intoxicating with the potential fun on the horizon but also having to drive defensively and watch out for every bad driver and haphazard texter you encounter on that trip.
Flying certainly isn't without its trepidation as well, but for the most part those skies seem fairly calm and most have little to no issue with flying as it stands when it comes to the routine events that could happen, even if they are very few and far between (such as the stray emergency landing).
What is more alarming and quite disturbing however hardly is the very minimal chance of issues in the air but rather trends that are taking place that have no business being involved in the flying process.
