Panel 1

Below deck, Vaarsuvius works on an arcane scroll.
Blackwing: Unnnnhh...
Vaarsuvius: How can you be airsick? You are an avian!
Blackwing: Hey, I fly under my own power! 
Vaarsuvius: I fail to see what difference that should make.

Panel 2

Blackwing: Tell you what: Instead of walking everywhere, how about you sit in a bathtub tied to a boulder, and then we give it a push down a hill?
Blackwing: And then we'll see how settled your stomach stays.

Panel 3

Up on deck
HaleyVaarsuvius!
Haley: We need you up here, please!

Vaarsuvius: *sigh*

Elan: And it's not supposed to be!
