Something weird

I recently did a SYZ=>THR flight and after the flight went to the cockpit. I asked the pilot about things like Cruise Speed, flaps etc. he told me that the cruise speed was 550KTS. The aircraft was an A320. But doesn’t the A320 overspeed at 350KTS?

He told you the ground speed

He meant ground speed…

I know. But the ground speed even couldn’t be that high at FL340

It actually could. I was flying at 30,000 feet and my airspeed was something like 270, but my ground speed was 450.

Definitely was ground speed and being that he said cruise speed, elevation may have been around FL300

No it shouldn’t
