This blog is about my first time flying experience. I have to admit, the experience wasn’t too bad. My family and I went to Orlando, Florida for our vacation. The flight was a little over 2 hours, so not too bad for me.
My parents and I flew out of Providence’s airport, T.F Green. It’s a smaller airport compared to Logan or JFK but it’s also less crowded. We were able to get through security in less than 5 minutes compared to the 45 minutes at Logan or JFK.
We picked our seats on the plane before getting there and were assigned seats 4A, 4B, & 4C from the front of the plane. The flight was pretty smooth until we started descending into Orlando. It got a little shaky but other than that it was fine.
Hi. I am a working professional, a mother of three and a wife. I have never flown in my life before. I feel like I’ve missed out on one of life’s great adventures.
I decided to write this blog because there is so much information out there about flying, but nothing that actually follows someone who has never flown before, step by step through the process. There are plenty of blogs about how to get the best deals on airfare and what to eat on long flights and how to entertain your kids during the flight, but nothing that simply talks about what it is like to fly for the first time.
So here I am, writing this blog in preparation for my first flight ever. It’s going to be a bumpy ride!
The first time I flew was a huge milestone in my life. It was the year 2015, and I was flying to the United States of America. I had been to the United States before, but I had driven there along with my family. So, to me flying was a whole new experience. The day that I flew to America was also the day that I would start high school.
My flight was scheduled for around 5:00 pm, so this meant that my morning routine was slightly different from what it usually is. After having breakfast, we headed off to the airport. On our way there, I started to feel more and more nervous. This feeling of nervousness seemed to be shared by others on the plane too; many people that were on my flight were also flying for the first time!
After checking in our bags, we proceeded through security and then sat down at a restaurant inside of the airport for lunch. At this point, it hit me that I would be leaving soon; it hit me that I would be away from home for longer than usual.
After lunch, we headed towards our gate and waited outside until they called our flight number to board. When they did, we got into an orderly line and proceeded through a tunnel and onto the plane
The experience of flying on a plane for the first time is one that will live with you forever. It’s an adventure, something you’ll never forget.
It’s also not without its moments of frustration and irritation, especially if it’s your first time flying. Many people don’t even know where to start for something like this – the process can be a little confusing and stressful the first time around.
Luckily for you, we’re here to help! We’ve been through the process ourselves, and we’ve come to learn what does and doesn’t work when it comes to flying on a plane for the first time.
Today we’ll be walking you through our top tips and tricks for getting through your first flight in one piece, with minimal frustration (or panic attacks).
The first time I flew in a plane I was barely old enough to walk, so I do not remember anything about it. The second time I went for a flight was at the age of six and this is what I remember:
I was excited.
It was an easyJet flight to Spain (Alicante).
The plane looked so tiny!
My mum kept telling me that everything would be fine, but I wasn’t convinced.
I wore noise cancelling headphones.
I didn’t like flying that much.
The third time I flew, which was yesterday, was very different from the previous two times. This is what happened:
The first thing that happened when we arrived at the airport (at around 2 pm) was that we had to go through security. My little brother got told off for putting his shoes on the belt before taking his iPad out of his bag. After going through security we went to our gate and waited for our plane to arrive. As soon as it did my little brother started talking about how he couldn’t wait to get on the plane and how much he loved flying. I didn’t believe him until we got on and sat down in our seats – then he started jumping up and down in excitement! When we
I remember my first flight experience like it was yesterday.
It was a cold morning in November of 2012. I had been waiting for this day for months, and it was finally here!
My sister and I were going to Brazil for the first time to visit my grandmother. We couldn’t wait to spend a month with our family, eating delicious food and exploring the beautiful country that is Brazil.
We arrived at the airport around 4am and boarded the plane around 6am. The flight was long, about 10 hours, and it felt like we were never going to get there!
When we finally got there though, I realized that all of the waiting was worth it. The weather was warm and sunny. My cousins were running up to me, screaming my name in Portuguese. It was an amazing experience!
I still remember my first flight. It was in the summer of 2010, when I was 13. My dad took me to the airport, where I met my friend and we flew to Italy. I had never been on a plane before and was very excited about being able to fly somewhere far away from my home in California.
We boarded the plane, which was very big and had lots of seats for people to sit down in. The airplanes also had TVs that showed movies or music videos and even some games you could play! I thought this was amazing because you don’t see those kinds of things on regular buses or trains that often.
I think one thing that made the plane ride so memorable for me were all of these new experiences: eating food out of tiny packages instead eating at restaurants like you usually would when traveling by car; watching movies while flying over clouds; going through security/customs/immigration lines without having any idea what they were there for (since I hadn’t flown before); seeing other countries’ landscapes change dramatically as we flew across them; etc.
As soon as we landed, it felt like everything changed: the air smelled different; people spoke languages that weren’t English; I saw buildings with neon lights on them instead of brick houses like at
