In brief: Anxiety plane travel
Lot of people have anxiety while flying.
It is not that uncommon, but it varies in severity and can be just palpitation, to where some one will refuse to fly'this phobia can be overcome by psycotherapy and in mild cases some people can overcome by taking a tranquiliser like Valium or Xanax (alprazolam) may be enough.So decide what is good for you.

In brief: Relaxation exercises
Many travelers experience anxiety during plane travel, despite knowing it is a very, very safe mode of transportation.
Worldwide nearly 3 million people fly safely every day. Anxiety may be lessoned by simple relaxation techniques or meditation. There are even classes and flight simulation programs available. Anti-anxiety medications (such as valium or ativan) may have a role - talk to your doctor.
