Actually, my fear comes more from claustrophobia associated with being strapped into a seat with no legroom.

That's the bit I don't like. I'm confined in a space with sometimes hundreds of people whom, statistically, at least a few are carrying some nasty bug that I want no part of. Super-TB anyone? And airlines, to reduce costs, refresh the cabin air less frequently than they used to do.

Not to mention all the mites and "stuff" in the seats themselves. And does anyone disinfect those tray tables or armrests? (If not, what't he point in washing your hands??! Which, statistically, many people do NOT...like the people who sat in your seat on a previous flight.)
