I imagine the sick bags got put to good use on that flight!

I travel a lot on planes and every time there is turbulence I feel like in a roller coaster...but with those winds that would be worse than the Wild Mouse in Blackpool

2h30m after starting the descent from FL400 flight EK17 to Manchester finally has touched down at Gatwick - amazing amount of extra fuel on that baby.

On our A320's we say a tonne of fuel per half hour of holding. Not much fuel used in the descent (N1's back at idle), starts to drink it when in the hold. A fairly heavy aircraft won't be thrown around like an empty A320, which can sometimes feel like flying a crisp packet on a windy day!
