A220 cruising altitude

I’ve been watching the A220 lately on the tracking apps and I’ve noticed the plane is averaging 28/29 thousand feet cruising altitude while the A320 doing the exact same routes at the same time is going way higher.

Is there any limitations or specs that would explain that?

About the aerodynamic icing, the answer they are looking for is at 500kts, you stop accumulating, but you don’t melt what you have accumulated.

Call Cornwall and calculate the cost of driving up there! It would be a nice experience to do the drive and they are able to get you going quickly and efficiently.

Most recent junior Q400 position in YVR went to a pilot with 1 year seniority (effective Dec 1, 2019). (just for a reference for those wanting YVR)
How come the new GS offers 50% Q's out of YVR ? :?

Re: Record revenues vs 4 year flat pay

Flat pay for the first 4 years isn't a bad idea. The bad idea here is how low that flat pay is. As a major airline, it's sad to see people required to drop their salary and WAVCON when joining a new company while going "up the ladder", if going to AC is considered going "up the ladder". But on the o...

Hi, Just wondered what was your interview process and how you handled your previous job while being into that process?

How is it to be a SO/RP... I mean, the joy of flying is to perform takeoff and landing for most of us. Doesn’t it get boring after a while of just “monitoring” the AP, even on a 777 ?
