Hey everyone, after at least 6 years of reading I decided enough is enough and I signed up. This is my first post.
In April 2011 I flew TLV-GRU-TLV on an LY 772, on both ways there was zero turbulence, not even in that "notorious" area where the AF Airbus went down. I have 2 flight attendants friends, one BA one AF. They both told me that this area is almost always very turbulent.
Now, I do love flying but strong turbulence, particularly over the sea makes me nervous.
I am supposed to fly to GRU again in April, either with LX 340 via ZRH or LH 744/TAM 77W via FRA.
My question is the following: The 777 and the 747 seem "heavier" in the air than the Airbus 340. Does this have any influence on how strong the turbulence is felt? Also, any info on turbulence on flights to/from South America is appreciated!
