There is good news for those who don't like to fly in the stormy weather and turbulent skies. New technology will allow for pilots and airlines to adjust the flight path and schedules to make for smooth flying.
There are reports that AI technology will soon be assisting pilots as they navigate over the rough air and helping airlines keep flights on schedule.
According to a report from viewfromthewing.com:
American Airlines has new technology that’s enabled them to avoid cancelling 1,000 flights in just the past year. It helps them recover quickly during weather events, replacing manual processes with computers. And it changes how we should think about who’s at fault when a flight does cancel.
Have you ever flown with a kid who is not happy about flying? We have four kids and recently, I took our seven-year-old on a trip from Buffalo to Atlanta and he was feeling sick for most of the flight. I was super nervous trying to make him feel better and keep him from getting to the point to actually throwing up. What is a 2 hour-ish flight felt like all day!
