Hello, I am flying from Newark, NJ to Reykjavik, Iceland Friday March 30th at 8:10pm scheduled departure. Can you please provide a forecast? Hopefully pretty good news! Have not flown in a while and therefore nervous. Generally, are the conditions for landing in Iceland pretty good or does it have a bumpy reputation like Las Vegas does?

Thank you so much!
Ian

Generally speaking, a lightly to moderately bumpy first half, with a nice second half, probably bumpiest near Newfoundland. Iceland landing should be fine, it's the turbulent jet stream for the first half that should be cause for concern, turbulence wise.

Thank you! I assume a faster Jet Stream in mph means more bumps in general? Newfoundland always seems to be s culprit on trips to Europe. Hopefully jet related bumps aren’t too bad!

Faster jet stream isn't always indicative of a more turbulent ride. You are right, the jet stream seems to like Newfoundland though.
