My longest ATC session was at the last Atlantic Crossing FNF (6 hours at JFK), so I always love these FNFs. Thanks Tyler!

Very excited for this one, looks like those oceanic tracks are going to be overflowing with aircraft. This may be one of the rare times we get center frequencies in Atlantic airspace.

Everybody needs to remember to stay at the correct altitudes especially when it’s really crowded so odd altitudes when going east and even altitudes when going west

For sure, IFR altitudes tomorrow are going to be crucial

For the most part this is true, but you can still find planes going west at add odd altitudes and vice-versa. Check FR24

You’re right, but this is not common and these aircraft are usually doing this for spacing reasons, or following ATC instructions.

Actually, in North Atlantic Airspace, the semi-circular rule does not apply. Each NAT has a set of altitudes, odd and even, which can be used for that track. No other altitude is a valid altitude for that track. They can be found on a NAT track message, issued each say by Shanwick and Gander collaboratively. It can be found by a quick google search. Obviously, tracks only go in one direction at a time, so East/West rules are redundant.
For a random routing, i.e. one that doesn’t use a track, well IRL you would get it assigned in your oceanic clearance, so semi-circular rule is fine.

Yeah, not sure why people seem to think the semi-circular “rule” is a solid rule that must always be abided to. It’s good as a suggestion, yes, but not required by any means.
