Can A350 climb to 43,000 while on 14% load?

im currently enroute to helsinki and the aircraft is light but im not sure if it can make it to 43,000 anyone can help?

Given the light weight, that shouldn’t be a problem as the A350 is generally suitable to fly at FL430! And if you notice that the plane can’t reach that altitude for whatever reason, you can always select a lower flightlevel.

Yes! The aircraft is light, so all is supposed to be good. I would not recommend pushing the aircraft to its ceiling, which is 43000, as it can be dangerous.

The A350 flies at 43000ft regularly IRL.

I’ve only been at 43,000ft once IRL, was flying on a Qatar/Latam A350.

It can probably go up to FL500, dont quote me tho…

Not regularly but rather when the aircraft is light enough to do so, because doing that can result in less fuel burn.

And it most certainly can’t, no airliner at the moment can push FL430. The concorde as far as I knew was the airliner with the highest ever ceiling (60,000 ft ~ 18,300 m)!

B744 can go up to FL451.

I’m sure it can in the game but as for in the real world I highly doubt it, am I mistaken greatly?

Ceiling cruise height for commercial aircraft is FL430

Not always. 744 is FL451.

Flight enveloppe[111] Mach 0.92 (528 kn; 977 km/h) airspeed limit, 45,100 ft (13,700 m) maximum altitude

You would be correct, and we would be mistaken 😂 never knew this thing could touch the stars.

C&P the first line of info then do CTRL/CMD+F and paste it into the finder to see the info we’re on about.

And apparently this message is invisible… 🙂 Hard to miss I guess it wasn’t.

Nope its not

Yea when I was at 33,000 I encounter 100 knots+ headwinds and the game told me I won’t make it to my destination so I turned away and climbed to 43,000 and then I have enough

When I land and parked at the gate my aircraft load was on 4 percent and the fuel is on 4 percent too

The message I wrote above proves otherwise… Don’t know how you missed it.
