That's a really good question, Lili.
'Brooding' is a specific type of 'worrying' which involves thinking deeply about something in a very introspective way for a long period of time.
Although the passenger may well have been brooding about his forthcoming flight, it would be very unusual for the other person to use that term in simple conversation with someone I presume he doesn't know well (from the fact that she has to ask him if he's flown before).
