What altitude do you fly at during your flight?
Depends on the flight.
Highly depends on distance
KLAX-KSAN FL150/160(Depending on direction)
It depends on the aircraft & distance.
The highest I have ever flown in a direct route in IF was FL400: A330-300. Honolulu to Hilo.
I took a longer route due to conditions in the middle.
Mostly FL320 / 0.85M
FL350 KPSP-MIJ in a Delta 767.
Only in Seattle and Singapore Region I cruise over FL150.
Normally between FL230 if is a dash 8 or up to FL350 if the airliner is much bigger like a 747 or A380
Well since global flight is coming, I can fly much higher such as 35,000ft and stay there for a while.
(Also since Global a flight is coming, anyone think about the Concorde? 😏)
Depends. Main factor is plane, then destination. I usually rely on actual cruise speeds and flight levels.
It depends on aircraft, distance and your flight
Based on the Plane and the distance
For Example :
- For WSSS-WMKK, I’m cruising at 20.000ft (IRL, Aircrafts that flying on WSSS-WMKK route usually cruising at 20.000ft)
Depending on the route, is approach active (approach = longer flight = more decent time), aircraft, speed etc.
But usually 12000-16000ft.
Actually the minimum as I see from the AIP is FL280
IIRC on Flightradar24, a Singapore Airlines (I forgot the flight number) That heading to KL was cruising at 20.000ft
Oo well that’s funny haha but still I don’t recall any airway having a cruising altitude as low as FL200
I’ll check FR24 With SQ118
EDIT: Confirmed, It’s cruising at FL200. It’s Quite high for 35 mins flight (by A359)
I fly usually at around FL120-FL150. I need to go higher for longer flights.
As everyone else says, depends on the AC, route taken, distance to destination, etc.
A routine 125NM flight won’t usually allow enough time to climb above FL240, before having to begin your descent.
On a typical flight from KLAX to KSAN in a B712, I level-out at FL180, which allows for
about 5mins of cruise (just enough time for cart service).
Edit: Though, must admit, the B712 gets a little head-start through initial climbout…shuttling away.
Mmm, peanuts and Pepsi…
Most people here cruise too high.
Depends highly on distance.
