When a BA pilot says: “Really bad weather conditions in Geneva, we have a storm and strong winds on approach. Please don’t worry-the plane is more than capable of landing in these conditions”

They mean – “it might get a bit bumpy so if you’re snoozing it might wake you up”
When a Swiss Air pilots says: “We’ve started our descent. Weather conditions in Geneva are good, clear skies and just a bit windy”

They mean – “You will all be screaming and saying your goodbyes by the time we land. The sudden drops will make you wish you hadn’t eaten today."
I feel like these cultural differences are good to understand before you fly in bad weather conditions. I also feel like taking a train from now on.
Thanks @VicTuomisto for first pointing this out to me
