    Hello,tedtmc.
    Kindly see the following suggestions.
    I'm scared of air travel.
    3.....she also wakes me...(At the door-to see her off.It is a custom in India to see off the guests/dear ones at the door).
    5. I slammed the door in her face.

    Regards,
    rj1948

    Re: correction needed

    Thanks RJ for the corrections.

    Is there a difference?

    1. I am scared of flying.
    2. I am scared of flying in a plane.
    3. I am scared of air travel.

    I think the writer meant No. 2.

    or
    when she gets up she also wakes me up with her.

    what do you call a person who is scared of airtravel? or what is fear for airtravel called?

    Thanks

    It was not corrections .Suggestions
    Not much of a difference.One can fly in an air baloon, chopper,fighter planes..
    Air travel-travelling in an airplane from one place to other.
