A Message to the Pilots

@Aviatorwyatt That’s where I experienced the worst of it. I was facing winds of 60kts under 10,000ft in Seattle🤦🏾‍♂️

@Neman_Rahmani I was at FL360 with winds at 135kts

@Hendrik2003 I can only imagine

@AviatorEgcc I heard Amsterdam gets some crazy winds. I guess I’ll find out when I transition to the A330 (Delta) this summer 👀

Yeah, turbulences are pretty strong lately. Recommending SkyVector: Flight Planning / Aeronautical Charts site to check SIGMETs before you actually take off.

Yeah there was some snow storms here in Washington so there is some turbulence in those clouds especially above the Cascades

I just got done flying DL966 (SEA-ATL) and it was a little intense on the climb out. However, I faced a nice tailwind on the way out and got into Atlanta over 30 mins early!! I did a scheduled 4hr 41min flight in 3hrs and 44mins. The tailwind was 135kts. Other than that, the winds eventually calmed down to about 75kts then 55kts which was way smoother than 135 lol.
