It feels like all the bones in you skull are being pried apart with surgical instruments. I’d love to say my decision to never fly Ryanair was ethically driven rather than because they flew leaky old 737s…
On top of the pain, the first time I flew had added terror as nobody had told me it could happen. I thought I was going to pop, Cronenburg style, all over the cabin!
A mixture of painkillers and pseudephedrine plus flying a new plane is the solution by the way.
