    2/17 UA 2319 sfo-ewr

    2/17 ua 2319 2:00 pm PT sfo-ewr This past week of turbulence and strong jet stream has me on edge for my flight tomorrow. One thing I’m looking forward to is it’s the newest Dreamliner (787-10) and I have found dreamliners to give smoother rides, as promised. Thank you in advance!

    9/5 jbu 578 9:09 am sfo-fll

    The tropical storm that passed through Florida yesterday and is turning into a hurricane has me more on edge that usual. Hopefully we'll steer clear; how does the overall flight look? Thanks! Kelly

    9/20 vrx 1867 5 pm DEN-SFO

    Had one of those roller coaster descents into Denver today (although everything before 20,000 feet was a great flight!) The pireps have been a mess around Denver today and I'm hoping for less of an adventurous flight home tomorrow. Do conditions look the same? Thanks! Kelly

    Hi there! Another trip to Tokyo. Would love any predictions for the way out -- I'm already expecting the way back to be a bit bumpy given the route and jetstream Best, Kelly

    12/19 7:50 pm united (ual) 1278 den-newark It's been a long time since I've asked for a forecast! I flew out of Newark to Denver on Sunday and it was the worst turbulence I've had in a long time. Like, what the bleep is happening, "Airline attendants, please be seated!" stuff, and it lasted the...

    Only my second ever transatlantic flight, and I have no idea how to read the maps I could find. :) Excited to be visiting Sweden for the first time! Thanks for the forecast, Kelly

    How would you interpret this flight graph? (My flight this morning) So this was my flight today. It was a rough ride for most of the trip, through thunderstorms, but the really weird part was we seemed to stall about 2/3 of the way in. I've never experienced something like that...

    extreme turbulence PIREP

    I saw my first report of Extreme Turbulence on the U.S. map today -- on the World Explorer map. It was at 28K feet, and I think an A320 or A322 on the East Coast. Looks like a jet stream mess today on the East Coast? I'm on a red eye tomorrow and hoping for a typically seasonally bumpy flight...

    Not sure there will even be a flight (Virgin cancelled all of today/tonight's flights to NY area). But if there is, how does it look? (I'm guessing not smooth.) Best, Kelly

    Sun 11/10 16:55 PM JFK-NRT NH1009 (on ANA/UNITED)

    Hi! I'm about to take the longest flight of my life (New York to Tokyo = about 14 hrs), and I'm feeling pretty good about it! The company who booked the trip got me a 1st class ticket, which is amazing (and also a first for me). Would love a forecast and/or thoughts on this flight path in...

    6/14 VIR25 LHR-JFK 8:05 PM (London time)

    Return flight (preceded by short flight from Edinburgh on a British Airways airbus, which makes Virgin Atlantic's airbus look like a luxury cruiser). Hope the East coast weather doesn't delay the flight; we're not expected to land until 11 PM NY time. Best, Kelly

    Hi again! I'm not sure how to read maps for this trip, and it's my first transatlantic flight (and flight to Europe!). Would love a forecast for the leg to London. (After the flight to London, I have a short flight to Edinburgh, my final destination.) Best, Kelly

    Landing in Thunderstorms -- not really scary, very stunning!

    First time landing in severe thunderstorms (the storms that passed through the Gulf area last week). We landed around 5:30 AM, still dark, directly through the storms. We were surrounded by lightening. It would go from pitch black to the flashes of lightening (in every direction) and then...

    Question about severe turbulence PIREPS on East Coast

    In the last couple of days I've noticed several reports of severe turbulence, many at cruising altitudes, by large planes (e.g. B777 and A320; there are a couple of reports right now on the map). Considering how rare that is supposed to be, I was curious if anyone know what's causing it. The...

    2/26 7 AM VRD12 SFO-JFK I know it's last minute, but I'll also be on Virgin's wireless throughout the flight, and welcome any forecast until landing! :) The current maps look YIKES to me, but at least I no longer contemplate trying to avoid a bumpy flight. Thank you! Kelly
