Should be fine: The triggers for vertigo are rarely obvious. I hope you have seen an ENT specialist for advice and analysis. If you happen to get vertigo in the airplane, you will be strapped in your seat anyway and it will pass. You might try Meclizine 25 mg prior to the flight as a precaution (this is an over the counter product).
