Take another look at the sentence:

When Fabiana flied from Dallas to Orlando, the plane hit such a bad patch of turbulence that the passengers felt as if they were riding a rickety rollercoaster at the state fair.

The first verb, flied, is incorrect. The sentence requires the simple past, flew. Flied is a spelling error.

Fly is an irregular verb; the chart below shows its forms.
