Mass hypnosis event seeks to cure people of flight phobias

Plenty of people are scared of irrational things: people with koumpounophobia are afraid of buttons, lutraphobia sufferers are terrified of otters. But flying, like the dark, is one of the most rational things in the world to be afraid of.

If things go awry while you're in the sky, chances are, you're doing to die. Please don't let the levity of that previous sentence's rhyme detract from its seriousness.

However inescapably true that may be, the fact is, the chances of you being involved in a fatal air crash are about 1 in 30 million.

1 in 20 Brits have lost a night's sleep due to the fear of flying, so in a bid to cure guests of their flight phobias Premier Inn staged a mass hypnosis event at Heathrow Terminal 5.

People were invited to submit their wussy brains to the melding of master hypnotherapist Dominic Knight, who used neuro-linguistic programming in order to melt their fear of flying.
