I’ve been having issues with the A330NEO in Infinite Flight on and off, but the worst incident I’ve had was yesterday. I was flying the Delta A330NEO from SEA-HNL, and did a normal climb to cruise and leveled off at 37,000 and a speed of Mach 0.83. We went along normally for about 10 actual minutes (sped up on Solo mode), until we suddenly began loosing speed and the nose begain drifting higher. I noticed, and disengaged the autopilot. I tried bringing it up to full thrust and pointing the nose down to gain speed, but the aircraft still stalled and crashed into the ocean. I had brought the nose down to almost direcly down at one point (I then brought it to just below level to prevent a plumet into the water) but we kept loosing speed.
Does anyone know what may of happened?

Thanks for your swift response! I did seem to have enough fuel, as I filled the tanks to the maximum allowance (so not to get into the MTOW zone) before my flight, so it should have plenty of fuel for much longer than 48 minutes.
If you haven’t already I’d strongly suggest using SimBrief as you can get real world flight plans and a ton of aircraft are supported. You will be given a detailed flight plan with realistic fuel loads based on the route, aircraft load, etc. It even takes reserves and diversion airports into account so you can be sure to take a proper amount of fuel instead of taking too much or too less. As far as the 330 goes…it is hilariously underpowered in game. In real life the aircraft can climb up to the high flight levels and fly efficiently while in game even at a lower weight, the aircraft still doesn’t want to climb.
