Tailwind/turbulence

So today (9/5/22), I have had some INSANE tail winds…flew from KSEA to KBOS and I was getting 45-60 knots of tail wind from FL220-FL37000 in the a321. Experiencing the same flying from LSZH to the east. Anyone else experience the same thing today?

45-60kts is nothing at cruise.

Over the Atlantic it’s common for winds to be in excess of 100kts, sometimes 150kts.

Don’t go to Korea then, 45-60 kts is not huge to have 100 or more so no worries.

Try the pacific winds, they are fun

I have had crosswinds like this landing in Iceland.

As we speak I have a 100 knot crosswind over Australia.
