    That's good news; it's really hard to tell sometimes, so I'm extra glad this one worked out.

    So it was probably my smoothest atlantic crossing ever. Only chop was light-mod over the second jet about 4 hours in. Couldnt have been happier.

    I look at this one (making sure I read the one for the time of your flight). I also usually have looked at them the previous day so I know if things are trending better or worse.

    and this one to get an idea of the flight path

    Also keep in mind I forecast worst case, so you'll be prepared. It's often much better than I say.

    yuck, not what I like to here, but i have the worst luck when it comes to flights. Just out of curiosity, which maps do you read and how do you read them when dealing with an atlantic crossing, I'm always confused about those, that is if you don't mind giving away your trade secret, if you do I totally understand. I'll let you know how it was when I get to the other side.

    There's at least two jet streams swirling around your flight path, both of which are indicating turbulence. I would say the first half, occasional to continuous light to moderate, especially at the start, and the middle of the ocean. The last 40% of the flight looks to be much better, just occasional light for that.

    Still a bit early, I'm queuing this up for a forecast tomorrow early afternoon.
