We were navigating around some summer thunderstorms earlier this week.
In the picture below, we’re east of Las Vegas, New Mexico flying westbound from Charlotte to Phoenix. We were flying the Airbus A321 which was 100% full. Yay.. Surprisingly, it was very smooth deviating around the weather. A pleasant experience even though I had the seat belt sign illuminated.
Heading to Chicago’s O’Hare and passing north of some thunderstorms southeast of the Sioux Falls area. We were flying an Airbus A321 flying at 35,000′. One of the benefits of the A321, it has a very good radar system.
