Strong tailwinds

Is anyone experiencing very high tailwinds of up to 150 knots in the route between KBOS-EGLL? I’m cruising 36,000 ft. It’s really crazy… if anyone knows a much more calm altitude I appreciate it !

Windy.com is a great tool to see what the winds are like at different altitudes.

Haha. I’m going to EGLL, too. The tailwinds are insane. We might make record time.

Yeah haha only 3 hours and 50 minutes with these tailwinds

Nice, I’m 862 nm out of EGLL.

They did slow down a bit. They were at 130+ sometime earlier in my flight.

Yeah they were like 145 for me and they slowed down to 120

Same for me, they have slowed down like 60 knots for me, it was at 160 knots. You should get a lot soon.
