A TRAVEL lover has used a cup of jelly to share her top tip on why you shouldn't be scared of turbulence during a flight.
The TikTok influencer used the jelly example to explain that a plane is facing pressure from all directions while in the air which keeps you suspended despite the occasional shaking.
Anna Paul, who vlogs "every day of her life" according to her bio, held up the cup of red jelly and wrote, "fear of flying tip," in the caption.
"This is how to not be scared of flying," Paul said in her video that amassed nearly 19million views.
To create her airplane model, Paul shoved a piece of a napkin into the cup of jelly until it was suspended in substance.
She said to pretend the napkin is an airplane that is experiencing "pressure" from all sides, thus suspending it in the gelatin.

"And there's never been a plane crash from turbulence," she continued.
"So you don't have to be scared.

This comes after a travel expert revealed a free trick that can get you a full airplane row to yourself.
One woman on TikTok, a travel expert who goes by @travelalamer online, said she knows a trick to getting your own row in economy if you’re traveling with a friend.
When picking your seats during purchase, she said to choose the row that has three empty seats.
“Then pick a window and an aisle seat, leaving the middle open,” she explained.
“Flyers are least likely to book a lone middle seat.”
She said that, depending on how full the flight is, this trick usually proves successful.
“And if someone happens to book the middle seat, they’re typically happy to swap for your window or aisle.”
It sounds like a win-win regardless: at best, you’re left with an empty middle; and at worst, you end up with what you would have likely chosen if you didn’t know the hack.
