On February 9th, Alitalia flew from New York to Italy in only 6 hours and 38 minutes! This is a new record from New York to Rome!
The plane actually landed over an hour earlier than scheduled! The normal flight time is about 7.5 hours. But how did this occur? There was a very intense jet stream blowing from America to Europe during the time of the flight. As a result, the plane was able to reach speeds up to 1,164 km per hour (723.27607 Mile/Hour).
