Flying at cruiser altitude

Just wondering, why most of pilots does not fly at cruiser altitude? Is this not allowed in expert server although if you are below 550kts? , just asking.

Because it’s not worth it, the destination isn’t far away because the Regions are not big enough


Why should you fly at 35’000 feet for a short flight? This is unrealistic.


You can fly at any altitude you want. Obviously flying at a cruise altitude for your set flight plan is more realistic however you don’t have to. As long as you are below 550kts ground speed below 40,000ft your fine.

I guess when Global Flight comes out, everyone will fly at cruiser altitude ;)

Make sense. I guess this is the main reason
