Fear of flying

and also

Add me to the list of happy adolescent flier, transformed into paranoid and reluctant adult passenger.

The one worry I would add to your list is the fear of airlines skimping on safety. I'm convinced some accountant has worked out a cost/benefit ratio for how much the airline would need to pay in order to make the plane TRULY safe vs. how much it would need to pay to my next of kin in the event of my death.

Plus, a colleague's brother works on airline engines here in Nevada and, cheerfully, loves to torment me with stories of how he "can't believe some of those planes are still in the sky based on the conditions of the engines" that come in for repair.
