Lowest You've Cruised on a Commercial Airline

Pretty much a part 2 to the Highest you’ve flown thread, but now its lowest!

Terms:

  • No small aircraft from airlines (meaning Cessna size)
  • State the airline
  • Aircraft
  • Altitude
  • From and arrival airport

Personal best:

23000ft

Lowest cruise, maybe 20000ft or a bit higher between Ezeiza and Carrasco (Montevideo).

That has to be DUS - SZG in an AirBerlin DHC8 - Q400. Those usually cruise at FL240, don’t they?

Lowest cruise I’ve flown was 15,000ft from KBFL to KLAX on a United AIRLINES EMB 120 turboprop

FL30 KORD-KSTL-KSEA

Fun scenery along the way

ATW-DTW 18000ft

I don’t have an altimeter, therefore I don’t know the specific altitudes I fly at.

Guys, lets be serious here, no FL000 or 1 mm above the ground. Lets talk about actual cruise FL.
