Extra Training Day at United
      02/12/16 09:42 PM

On departure from FRA on LH one day, the plane hit the unmistakable
WHAM!WHAM! of crossing another airplane's wake. It was surprisingly strong,
strong enough to upset at least a few pax. We were in clouds, so there were
no external clues.

While I was explaining wake turbulence to the stranger in the next seat, a
flight attendant came on the PA with a short and simple but correct
explanation in English, followed by assurance about the strength of the
airframe. He then repeated the whole thing accurately in German.

The pax seemed to be OK with that, especially since it didn't repeat. (We
were well outside the crowded FRA terminal airspace by then.)

Truth can work well and is the easiest story to keep straight.
