Is it fear of fly or heights as well? The only thing I could suggest is don't sit by a window and pretend you are on a bus or a roller coaster, though it would be a very gentle roller coaster.

I have a friend who did courses on how to overcome her fear of flying. She still gets nervous but now flys all the time. She takes her family on weekends away, has flown overseas. The fear is still there she just doesn't let it overtake her.

I will never be totally happy on a plane, but at least I get on one and get to my destination without white knuckles these days.
