There are a number of disadvantages to travelling by plane these days even though it really has made a big difference to most people’s lives.

  • Most airports will be situated on the outskirts of the city so once you get off the plane you will still have a bit of a journey before reaching your final destination. And when you take into consideration, the fact that you have to wait around in the airport before taking off, plane travel can sometimes end up taking you just as long as other types of travel, particularly internal flights.
  • There are a lot of people who feel that the hassle involved with security checks on airplanes can be quite troublesome.- You do not have nearly the same room for movement on a plane as you do on a train.
  • Some economy sections of certain planes are quite crammed and there is very little room.

    I agree with the safety aspect. more lives are claimed on our roads than in air travel so it is safer to travel by air. One other big down side is the carbon footprint it leaves, but then I suppose if one tool into account the carbon foot print of alternative travel we may find that is not as big as we think.
