I am planning a trip to PVG and I was wondering what is the best time to fly there? You sometimes read about severe turbulance and people smashing their heads...

I would defintely fly a day time flight which arrives in the evening. The overnight flight is usually a lot more turbulent than the daylight flight. By the way it is always turbulent around Japan with lots of currents around similliar to the equator. And if you can try to fly a 744!

I would really like to hear the explanation behind this one.

I don't have any statistics to back this up, but I think these severe turbulence instances are few and far between, but when they happen, the stories are sensationalized by media outlets. I suppose you could look at the weather, but thats only looking 7 days out at best. Night or day should make 0 difference. Whenever I fly and the pilot says it will be bumpy its not and vice-versa. Fly by night, keep your seat belt ON and sleep through most of it.



Andiamo!

Yeah...that's nice and all.. but only one problem- you're wrong. Turbulence happens all the time, but as a rule, things are generally calmer at night. It can be harder to handle for pax at night, but that does not make it more common than daytime..

You can find plenty of evidence for that if you want, heres just one example:
