My family really wants me to visit over the 4th of July, but I'm noticing that DL 723 and DL2928 (the two flights I'd likely be on) have dealt with weather or even had to go around due to weather in the past few weeks. I certainly don't mind paying a bit extra to book at last minute once I am aware weather conditions will be OK. In your experience, is this something that is usually a deal-breaker for you?

I was on one flight from FLL-IAH several years ago with storms in the gulf and it was pretty intense. Seatbelt sign on the whole time, probably the closest to severe turbulence I ever experienced. My drink was in my hand one moment and all over the ceiling the next. Definitely do not want to experience that again any time soon...

Frontier flies to CVG much earlier, and possibly the early morning air would be more favorable. Just thought i'd post/vent here since it's been on my mind a lot lately.
