    11/7 Bos-atl Dal663 Atl-las Dal645

    Depart BOS at 7:15am and connect/depart ATL at 11:15am. I've looked at the maps and I'm a little concerned about the jetstream. If I had to make an educated guess, I would say light to moderate turbulence throughout. I'm cursed! Thanks for you help in advance.
