On the Air June 2013 Issue

On The Air: June 2013

Flying over Kansas cruising on smooth air at FL430 while all the airliners were bouncing in light to moderate turbulence in all the flight levels under 400:
AA123: “Kansas City center, American 123. Do you know when this turbulence will smooth out?”
Kansas City Center: “On the ground at LaGuardia.”
While we were laughing, Kansas City Center asked us how the ride was. I felt bad when I had to report that it was as smooth as silk, knowing they couldn’t make it up to where we were. Actually not that bad.
