    Still a little early to know anything for sure. I'm heading home for a week on Sunday to visit with the folks. Weather system that is around the southeast should be gone by Sunday. Jetstream is...

    I've had turbulent flights and perfectly smooth flights (perfectly used very loosely there) throughout the year. My worst flight ever was in April. I've also had wonderful flights in April. I had...
  5. 12/26 9:17am MEX-ATL-RIC AeroMexico/Delta 636/1307

    Just checking on my flight for tomorrow morning. Flying out on AeroMexico, then taking Delta from Atlanta to Richmond. I imagine I'll hit some jet related bumps somewhere, just that time of year. ...

    I'm attaching 3 pics that I downloaded from this site and flightaware while I was in flight. I was flying from Richmond to Atlanta. The first picture is from flightaware and shows the weather I was...

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'm over turbulence. When I was flying back the last time, I flew through an area that had a ton of orange pireps. I knew because the plane had in-air wi fi. I also got on...

    Finally smoothing out a bit. It was interesting there for a while.

    I guess this is just moderate but it's been like this for about 20 minutes. They won't let us get up.

    I'm glad I don't get air sick. There's a block of red on the forecast map. I think I'm in the middle of it.
  11. Flying through a bunch of orange pireps right now.

    Woo hoo! Its rockin' and a rollin'. Flight is Delta 1931 from RIC to ATL for those who are interested.

    Thanks for the updates. I truly appreciate it. Flightaware.com in flight is awesome and interesting to follow. Thanks again.

    On wifi at 37,000 feet. We're over land with no more than a minute or so of what I'd call very light turbulence so far, so I'm assuming our pilot kept us away from Karen . Kudos to him and the...

    I figured as much for Monday. Oh well. No way it can be bumpier than the bus ride to the airport from Cuernavaca to Mexico City. Thanks for the info.
  15. Thanks for the forecast. Karen has me a little...

    Thanks for the forecast. Karen has me a little concerned, but I'm assuming the pilot isn't going to take us through a tropical storm. They'd fly around that, right? I only ask because it looks...
  16. 10/4/13 7:05 am MEX-ATL DL 364 / 2:21 pm ATL-RIC DL 1178

    Sorry if the subject line is messed up. I put both flights in this trip from Mexico to Atlanta then to Richmond. Bigger planes this time. I think the first plane is a 737 and the second is an...

    Kind of short notice. Sorry about that. From what I can tell, it doesn't look too bad. This is my travel week from hell. I fly to ATL tomorrow. On Friday, I fly ATL to Cleveland, then Cleveland...

    This. I finally got over my fear of turbulence by making a conscious effort to compare the bumps in the air to bumps I felt in my car. Even now, whenever I'm in the car and hit a bumpy patch of...

    Thanks for the forecast. I'll of course check out the maps before we board. I'm not looking forward to the heat, but I am looking forward to the food. 6 months with no good baked beans, potato...

    Still too early to see forecast maps for turbulence, but it looks as though storm-wise, things should be pretty calm on Thursday, a least stateside. Houston and Richmond along with cities in between...

    Not my thread, but I just wanted to say that comments like yours, which come from years of experience, are what got me over my fear of flying. Thanks for all you do!

    Volcanic ash permitting, I'm flying home for a 10 day visit on the 18th. This will be my 2 and a half year old daughter's first time to the US and first time on a plane. I'm sure she'll get a kick...

    I'm certainly no expert, nor do I claim to be, but I know that I've flown on perfectly clear days when the turbulence was constant and uncomfortable, just like I've flown in cloudy, rainy weather...

    I know for a fact they won't land if the weather is too dangerous. Last July, I had a long trip home. Flew from RIC to Orlando, then to Houston, and finally to Mexico City. The flight from...
