I got a dream job In Atlanta while I have home in Houston (ignore amazon. My last job). I need to fly back and forth as wife cannot move.

How safe is flying. I haven’t flown much at all

    You're much more likely to die in your commute within Atlanta than flying between Atlanta and Houston.

    Probability of fatality per hour of travel is somewhat lower for flying commercial compared to driving.

    Your main risk is catching a cold or flu on the plane.

    I think you should be asking yourself how scared you are of airplanes. No matter how safe it is, if you are on the verge of sh*tying your pants every time you travel, then probably it’s not gonna be worth it.

    Do yourself a favor and watch the show "air crash investigations" on YouTube. It will rid you of all your fears

    The biggest problem is that you’ll be spending most of your weeks away from your family, in hotel rooms or a second apartment. It could be fun for a bit, but most people don’t resist doing that for over 1 year.

    What kind of a question is this? How often have you heard of a plan crash within US? That is how safe it is.

    Flying’s not the issue - it’s fine.
    Being away from family so often while commuting is really hard though.

    If you’re not comfortable flying so often that it could cause anxiety, maybe it’s not worth it.

    Get ready for weather shutdowns and delays inplace of traffic jams. Do yourself a favor and get the lounge pass and some flight credit card as well

    You're more likely to get a royal flush in poker twice in a row than crash in a plane.

    It's safer than crossing the road.
