Taking a flight creates physical and emotional changes in us, something that is now being more extensively researched. Air travel can change our mood, make us emotionally weak (more crying) or sad, and even change how our senses work.
The factors responsible for this phenomenon are the high altitude, the reduced air pressure, inadequate oxygen going in the brain and overall anxiety associated with flying.
While we are on a flight, there are plenty of changes that we can experience:
Mood swings, along with general anxiety or nervousness are common among flight passengers.
Lower air pressure causes changes in the immune system of the passengers, which can lead to an increase in inflammations, which is linked to depression. This also makes them vulnerable to infections.
You steer something flying through the air at high speed by making the air flow in a different way past the wings.
Planes are moved up and down, steered from side to side, and made to stop by a complex collection of moving flaps called control surfaces on the leading and trailing edges of the wings and tail. They are called ailerons, elevators, rudders, spoilers, and air brakes.
Research has found that willing exposure to that which scares us can provide a counterbalance to life's stresses:
The plane crush can serve a function - it can make flying less miserable. It can help you cope with probably the worst part of travelling.
Even the plane's design can lend itself to flirtatious imaginings. The small seats and little leg room can be oddly romantic. Researchers found that when people are in anxiety-inducing situations, they may misattribute the feeling of nerves for attraction. It makes it then not unusual to believe you could meet someone you like on a plane.
