    Default 5/13 7:30am LAX-ATL-CLE DL616 DL2695

    Hi! Off to Cleveland tomorrow... 7:30am out of LA, through Atlanta with a long layover, then out of ATL at around 7:45pm.

    The max turb potential maps for 35k feet look decent, maybe some light east of Texas for a bit. But the clear air turbulence maps look worse...your thoughts?

    Thanks!

    DAL616 LAX ATL 0728 1437


    Should in theory be a pretty good one. Good takeoff and climb out of LAX. Lightly bumpy to smooth for most of it, a bit of light to moderate in the general area of Western Texas, and again Arkansas to just short of ATL, perhaps a bit of a break before ATL, light to moderate on landing, after a lightly bumpy descent, a bit of elevated winds, gusting up to 23mph.


    See you before the next leg. Tomorrow doesn't look too bad, but been seeing surprising reports of light to moderate where it shouldn't be / wasn't predicted.

    I inadvertently rewrote LAX ATL so I'll paste it below, but it's based on today's data.

    Good conditions in PHX for a good takeoff, a few light bumps on climb out.



    Flight overall looks pretty good, very occasional light bumps for the first part, starting to pick up a bit of occasional light to moderate in the area of Texas, then perhaps a bit of a break, and then more continuous light to moderate for the last part just east of Alabama / Tennessee.

    Gusty winds in ATL, for a bit of light to moderate on takeoff and climb out. Flight looks pretty good, just lightly bumpy. Lightly bumpy descent and landing into Cleveland. Not too bad!

    Thanks again... spot on!

    LAX - ATL was decent. No bumps at all until Texas, then the sign stayed on all the way until Atlanta but honestly not much more than light chop. In fact the last hour was nothing... I think they forgot the sign was on!

    ATL - CLE was nice and easy, no bumps at all, even on landing. On one of Delta's ancient MD-90s... a cool plane but I do wonder how long they can keep flying those

    Thanks again!

    I think the 90s will be retired soon, but they are exceptionally well maintained, and all the bugs have been worked out. Give me a 28 year old plane any day.
