I was just curious to see how flights are routed when a hurricane is in or near the flight pattern.
For example, say I was flying DFW-MIA yesterday morning, sitting on the left side of the aircraft. By the time I was in Katrina's vicinity, I would have reached cruising altitude high above the storm. Do flights fly over these huge storms? Has anyone ever seen one?

These storms top out at over 65,000 feet. Not even a concord could fly over. Even if you could fly over the turbulence would still be vicious and if you had a serious problem where would you land...maybe the eye
