Regardless of the banter taking place within the cockpit, my ears immediately tune in to a chop report. Even if the report is not on my track, it may very well affect our flight. If other airplanes ahead of us begin to have the same experience, the alarm bells are already ringing. Without question, I will call our flight attendants and give them an approximate time range when the bad ride may begin. On a handful of occasions, I have seated the flight attendants in anticipation. Although the turbulence wasn’t as serious as advertised, I was grateful to my colleagues. One injured flight attendant or one injured passenger is one person too many.
