  1. Set your altitiude for 32,000ft for example
  2. After an hour or more into the flight, chang your altitiude to 36,000ft and so on.

Basically if you’re doing a flight from Seattle to Narita on an a330neo. You would climb to Fl310 first then after 2 hours climb to FL330. 2 more hours. FL350. another 2. FL 370. Then one more at 390. FL390 should be your last altitude before descent

Just start at a lower altitude then climb up to higher altitudes, at intervals of 2000 feet, at a low vertical speed (ie 500 fpm). So for example FL300 to FL320 to FL340 to FL360
