At that point you would have almost reached the same time it would have taken for Concorde to do KJFK-EGLL

I’m in New York. The winds here starting 36 hours ago have been crazy. It has calmed a bit, but there are crazy gusts of up to 60mph (about 50kts). So I can’t imagine the winds up there!

Yeah man up here is crazy… when I started my cruise they were at 145 knots and now 103 knots… I’ve been flying for 2:30 minutos and they don’t reduce from 100 knots… it’s crazy

It’s an unfortunate feeling for passengers. :/
And IRL, as the sun sets, major traffic east across the Atlantic starts as planes leave North America and head over to Europe. All those planes probably won’t get a great ride!
