I’m currently cruising at FL390 with an Emirates A388 - my first time flying an A380. My callsign is Emirates 345 and I’m flying to Malaysia (WMKK). I can’t get faster than MACH 0.75. Is it because I’m too heavy? My load is at 50% and fuel is at 7h30m…
I think FL390 is a bit too high for 50%. Try FL370 or 350.
If that doesn’t work, check too see if any flaps are deployed, if you set any trim, or if weather is crazy.
Everything is fine. I’ll descend now and let ya know.
Descending. Still won’t go any faster than 215kts!
FL390 is way to high… 330 or 350 is best
FL33-350 is much better
Maybe send us a screenshot of what’s happening?
I’m at FL370. I recently flew that route IRL and we cruised that high.
It maybe due to not enough trim, but that doesn’t seem likely…
Your flight in real life probably had a variety of differing variables such as load, flight plan, or wind direction/speed. Also, irl your flight probably step-climbed up to FL370.
Speaking of which, what’s the weather like?
21kts headwinds to the left.
Found his flight via LiveFlight and checked Windy, in his vicinity there’s about 30kt headwinds so nothing terrible
Try setting the trim to 20% slowly, see if that does anything.
Yup. I’m on TS. Callsign is Emirates 345 and name is IFC DutchPilot1
Setting the trim now.
My airspeed is slowly climbing. Now at 224kts!
