Mine was in a very short flight: Mendoza (MDZ -Argentina) to Santiago last July. This Lan 737 bounced so hard: I remember a f/a hugging a seat in the isle because she was in the middle of the isle. You could hear things on overhead compartmens hitting and the same below us at cargo section... It was like the arcraft hitting something every 5 seconds... As I said in other post, SCL
airport attends more passengers injured due turbulence (faling objects, head injuries for not using seat belt etc) are for flights coming from Argentina (MDZ and EZE
) at nightime
The other heavy one was at the atlantic over Tenerife. After about 2 hours of anoying turbulences, there was about 10 minutes of fall, and fall again, and fall again, and again. and me being at the middle seat of the last row... oh torture,People woke up, I remember the lady next to me took the inflight magazine and look for the fleet page. He asked me "which of these are we fliying???)... The funny thing is after those ten minutes the 340300 just stopped shaking... just like that. Since there was 2 hours of being tied, I immediatly went to the rear galley because I was thirsty... and many bottles ans knifes (before 9-11) and spoons on the floor... When we arrived in SCL
, there was my first time the "audience" applaused the pilot after landing... Promise I didn't.
