Question -especially for you frequent travellers. Is the weather getting worse and if so is it going to get worse and worse for flying.
The reason I raise this is that last year I flew from Atlanta to Manchester(UK) and we had some pretty rough turbulance most of the way. On landing the pilot apologised for the rough ride and added that in his 10 years of flying the pond, this has been the worst. That was 2004/5. Recent events with the Virgin flight which encountered bad turbulance. I understand there are flights diverting in the mid west due to stong headwinds and severe unusual weather. The UK has had one of its coldest spells that I can remember and snow still falling in March as the high pressure from the south fights with the artic blast. I spoke to a girl in a mall in Orlando last year. She moved from Key West which was prone to Hurricanes to Orlando to get away from them and they seem to be worst then ever now.
Do regular travellers notice the flights they have been doing for years and years, the ride seems to be getting less smooth then it used to be.
