As the terrain near Lhasa Airport is too high, we cannot start the descent too early. I will calculate it before taking off and give you a briefing.

I can actually join this flight

In how many hours before departure

you still have more than 2 hours.

I will give you brifing half hour before departure. See the time above, i think
it will show the time at your place.

@Disheng_Zhang I think Sichuan Airlines use A319 or A320 to fly. Not 318, Maybe you can change it

yes, i konw because A320 doesn’t have suitable livery

I got this briefing from simbrief, it tell me cursing at 38000ft at M 0,8 , I’ve already done this route. i think this flight level is too high. I can’t cursing at this level with M0.78.

Simbrief gives you wack descent and climb speeds. Don’t follow them.

The service ceiling of the A318 is 39,100 feet. You’ll be fine at .78.
