During one of those interminable X-mas discussions someone noted that not
only does the jet stream affect the flight time of planes flying east-west
but so too does the rotation of the earth.  Had never heard of this before.
Seems that the atmosphere is mostly moving with the earth, but would like
to know if there is any change in flight times going east one way or west
the other way.
