Ok, my first transatlantic flight was deferred, so now I have 100% news that this Sunday is the day I will start my first transatlantic journey. Today I've started to feel really nervous. Really. The first thought that goes to my head - turbulence. Again, I can blame media for this. If I didn't read news about FA injuries during turbulence now I wouldn't be so afraid. Turbulence was never the thing I'm afraid most. I always new that it is safe. Now I feel tensed about that. I just can't imagine the level of turbulence which can cause injuries. Now I'm afraid to feel that level of turbulence.
The bright point of all this is British Airways Boeing 777 :) This is the aircraft I want to fly. Really want. Also GE90 engines makes me feel safe :)
By the way, captain Keith, could you tell me how transatlantic flight plan is made ? I mean what is the farthest distance to alternative airport is during all transatlantic flight ?
