Looks pretty interesting out there today...one extreme popped up on the pireps even.

yeah, saw that A310 report extreme right near NYC at 1500 ft but overall doesn't look too terrible out there, jet stream is pushing 200 mph, but doesn't have the twists you normally see with a lot of severe pireps

Flew MCO-BOS this afternoon on Delta. Plane coming in (from BOS) was delayed an hour; we got on board and were then told to expect a 2.5 hour delay (on top of the hour we already had due to late equipment), so we unloaded. Go to the CRC, grab a beer (about 3 minutes after getting off the plane) and then they call us back to the plane and tell us that a window opened up.

Ended up taking off at 1:30 p.m., landed in BOS at 3:30 p.m. 15R was the only runway in use at the time, not a whole lot of traffic leaving, some arrivals coming in (a JetBlue A320 and Air France 747-400 landed after us). A lot of cancellations and diversions according to the arrivals screen at BOS.

Not that bumpy during landing - was actually pretty smooth for it being a bad storm out there. I've experienced a lot more turbulence in much better weather before.

Just flew an empty US Shuttle from LGA to DCA.

Pilot said head winds very strong so we were going to fly at an "highly unusually low altitude." Flew down at just over 10,000 ft...cut 10 minutes off the expected flight time at the higher flight level.

A little bumpy on take-off and very bumpy near Baltimore.

Load was less than 20% and they moved me and many others from the 9pm shuttle to 8pm, so I wonder how empty the 9pm was.

Flew CO 800 FLL - EWR today on the 753. Delayed about an hour on the ground, got in an hour late, plus 30 minutes on the ground extra in EWR. Flight was completely smooth, not one bump until about 5 minutes before touchdown, but even then it was barely light chop. The captain did announce that there was going to be a lot of turbulence on the way into EWR during the approach, shame that never followed through for us turbulence enthusiasts!  Wink

Everything looks smooth today...

Kinda odd, how the east coast gets really bumpy every so often. I remember a BDL-ORD that had CONT MOD the entire trip. We cruised at 19,000 and was in an old shuttle UA 737.

Flying into AVL yesterday while passing through 10,000 to 8,000 we hit some NASTY mountain turbulence. Also, winds at altitude 30,000 were 140 knots from about 230 degrees. Smooth flying,.. but just some crazy headwinds headin back to ATL
