Disadvantages of travelling by airplane

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.

    If you are prepared for air travel (reading material for the flight, grabbing a quick meal while waiting for departure, etc) it is not that bad.

    Security checks can be a hassle, but once again travel prepared – keep your laptop in a bag that can be opened easily, wear slip-on shoes in case you are asked to remove them, etc.

    I feel the Pros of air travel far outweigh the disadvantages if you are prepared. I’d rather fly for two hours than having to drive for 14 hours on busy and dangerous roads.
