When I was flying from Dubai to Auckland in my 777-300er it suddenly started going upwards and then it stalled and crashed! Why is this, it keeps occurring and it is making me frustrated because I paid for the subscription to work so why does it keep stalling in crashing out of my control??
That is the issue, you were to heavy for that altitude.
When doing long haul flights, you don’t want to go all the way to cruising altitude. This means using the step-climbing method, you are going to want to cruise at a lower altitude for a few hours, before climbing to a higher altitude, preferably 2,000ft from initial cruising ALT.
Next time when doing a long haul, start at a lower cruising ALT, and then start to get higher up. And from looking at FR24, long haul flights reach higher altitudes as they are about 2-3 hours from destination.
Wow, ok as you can probably see my experience is very low. So I think I need to lower my passenger count, lower my speed and lower my altitude. What altitude do you like to cruise at during Ultra long haul flights?
