Some bumps possible at the beginning and end, the middle looks good. Enjoy your flight.

Flight details

Took off on time in this 737-800, and I was in seat 4F. Take off was pretty smooth, with an occasional bump. Got to cruise altitude at 38,000 feet in a crisp 20 minutes. Pilot then got on the horn; letting us know this would be a smooth flight.

Ten minutes later, all hell breaks out. Big bumps and shakes, probably light to moderate chop, with more bias towards moderate. Pilot tells everyone to get back in their seats, and the lights turn on again.

Anyhow, for the next 90 minutes or so he tries to find a good place to fly. We wind up going down all the way to 26,000 feet, but in reality nothing worked.

It was a horrible flight. And, I'm glad it is over!

Ah, well even the captain agreed with me, but mother nature had other plans. Sorry it wasn't smoother.
