Which current nonstop route would have the largest temperature change between departure and arrival at certain times of the year? Perhaps SVO-DXB, MSP-MIA, or ANC-PHX?

Also, have you ever been on a flight with a temperature change of at least 65F/35C between departure and arrival?

I think the KLM/SLM service AMS-PBM faces major differences sometimes.

I once was on a LPA-AMS flight. Gran canaria was having a very warm winterweek at 35C, my -9C arrival at AMS wasn't pleasant at all. While normally I don't mind some coldness.

A shorter flight to the extremes. MCO-PIT in January. MCO 78F. PIT on arrival -14F. Amusing to see a guy trying to smoke by running out to the curb dressed in shorts and a Disney tee-shirt taking a few puffs, laying cigarette on the curb, running back in terminal to get warm, running back out to puff, running back in..........all while waiting for a parking lot shuttle bus!

Yes, and it wasn't a too long one either. YYZ - ANU in February 2003. -17 C in YYZ, +31 C in ANU.

BGI-MIA-PIT. I forget the year, but it was 32C (just shy of 90F) in Barbados, and something like 5F (-15C) in PIT. MIA was maybe 80F / 27C. I wasn't the guy PI4EVER saw, but I sure did get a lot of strange looks in PIT because I was in shorts and a tee-shirt. I had to stand out on the curb waiting for my wife to come pick me up -- THAT was cold!

How about GFK-IWA in the winter? -40 F in Grand Forks and 80 in Phoenix. Talk about a shock to the system.

I had a connection in ATL, but when I flew MSP-FLL it was below freezing in MSP and 80+ in FLL. When I got back to Minnesota (by car) a few days later, it was below 0F. I missed Florida at that point. I've also flown MSP-PHX a few times in the winter, but it's been long enough ago that I can't remember temperatures.

MSP-HNL/MIA in the winter would be a consistent shock to the system.

Hell, yeah...almost any time I fly to BOS from BDA in February. I can leave BDA in 72F temperatures, and less than two hours later I'm at Logan, freezing my backside off in 0F weather!!!

I've experienced about a 55 degree temperature difference. Got on the plane in MCO where it was about 65 degrees. Landed in LGA and it was 10 degrees.

ANC-HNL (assuming that flight is year round).

Well I flew DEN-AMA-DAL on WN's one-stop service on December 25th, 2007. IIRC, it was a chilling 28F in DEN with 8" of snow on the ground from the night before. We got off the plane in Dallas to a temperature in the 70's. We got home, my dad put shorts on and went out front to mow the lawn.

The absence of airbridges can catch you out too. I recall flying Gulf Air from LHR - DEL, leaving a cool London (5-10C) then walking across boiling tarmac at Muscat as there were no airbridges (40+ C)...

DME-SYD on TransAero must be quite a shock.
Likewise winter CPH/OSL/ARN to Thailand flights must be a massive change.

In January 2006 I went from SZX to HRB. Temp in SZX was 24C. Temp in HRB was -26C. Quite a shock on your body.

Or "New in Town" when Rene Zellweger flew from Miami to New UIm, Minnesota and walked out of the terminal into a blizzard in her little black dress and heels.

Personally I travelled from Johannesburg to Rochester, MN via JFK and ORD in January, which is the height of our summer so certainly I met the criteria of 35C difference.



After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

ANC-HNL

I flew that route on Jan 3, 1987 and yes there is some serious temp. change as expected. Goes without saying on the flight back people were in denial and kept their Hawaiian tshirts, flip flops on all the way to inside the terminal at ANC. It is always a great scene at ANC to see few people like that, in the middle of the winter, coming back from vacation.

Flights from Canadian cities like Edmonton or Winnipeg, where winter temperatures of minus 40C (same as F) are not unknown, to points in Mexico or the Caribbean, would see a temperature difference of about 70 deg. C or about 120 deg. F since the temperature at the destination is more likely to be plus 30C (about plus 90F). Even shorter flights of about 3 hours to southern California or Arizona can mean temperature differences almost that great.

How about any AA A300 flight out of JFK going to the caribbean during the winter? Apparently that's where the former birds struggled with the most.

If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.
25 RJLover : When I flew YOW-YFB-YOW it was around 10C in YOW and -20C in YFB. That was quite the shock to my system.
26 srbmod : Ouch. Even into late May and early June there are some interesting temp swings when traveling from place likes YYC and YEG to places like LAS and PHX
27 EDICHC : Not the biggest temperature change but it felt like it... ...a few years back flew, MIA-LGW-EDI in February. Departed late afternoon/early evening on
28 mdavies06 : Yeah. That reminds me a trip from SYD-LHR once, from around 30C to about 0C. SYD and DME in Jan/Feb could have temperature difference of I guess 40-(
