Welcome in H.C.M.

I have gone through your queryregarding ear blockade in flight and followed by accumulation of fluid in ear. Though you are taking nasal spray but your problem is still persisting .

I think you are having recurrent or chronic secretory otitis media this may be manage as under-

1- Steam inhalation.

2- Anti histaminic & decongestant.

3- Steroids.

4- Antibiotic (preferably broad spectrum).

Probably above will help you but if above treatment failes than consult your ENT doctor for insertion of gromet in your ear drum.
