Tonight I made a flight plan to go from Mexico City (MMMX) to Los Angeles (LAX) I had real weather downloaded and was using a Aeromexico 757 I downloaded (it's a beautiful plane) Take off was good no complaints there, but as I was climbing to my cruise altitude of 31,500 feet ATC handed me off only one time and gave me a altimeter number once (30.34 was the last number ATC gave me) all the way to 31,500 feet.

Now I'm at my curse altitude of 31,500 feet, next thing I know ATC is telling me to expedite my climb to 31,500 feet. Well after 3 or 4 warning my flight plan was cancelled! Now I tired this flight 3 times and all 3 times it got cancelled just as I described above!

Have anyone else experienced this flying from MMMX?

guess what, you need to reset your altimeter to 29.92 passing 18000 feet.
That's true all over the world in FS (in reality it differs per country and sometimes even within countries or by time of day).
You're supposed to know that so ATC won't tell you to do it.
Your virtual controllers did everything right here (though if you were for real they might have scrambled the airforce to take a look at you).

I did not know that Jwenting thanks  Smile I never had to reset the altimeter before. Before last night I always left the altimeter on the last number ATC gave me and kept on flying with no problems. I'm going to try the flight again tonight, thanks again  Smile

You were just lucky then.
There is a 300 feet bracket both over and under the assigned altitude for you to fly in.
Depending on the altimeter settings, that can be enough that you don't notice (or the weather may be stable with an altimeter setting close to 29.92"/1013 HPa).

Also, why would you cruise at FL315? Flight levels are now given every 1000 feet (300,310,320,330,) and Westbound use Even numbers (320, 340) while eastbound use odd.

Some FS Panels I have seen have "Cruise ALT" switches witch automatically set ALT to 29.92 at 180 and above.

Just wanted to let you know that I flew the MMMX-KLAX flight last night, and had no problems  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

KLAX.........I put my cruise altitude at 31,500 feet cause I really wasn't sure what to put my cruise altitude at when I was planning the flight.....So I just guessed at the number.

KLAX,

The min. vertical seperation above FL180 is 2,000ft. No way a plane can travel westbound at FL340 and another plane traveling eastbound at FL350, that's a near miss.

In reality, 360-179 degrees alt must be either FL290, FL330, FL370, or FL410 and 180-359 degrees at FL310, FL350, FL390. Get it?

Gocaps16, haven't they changed it due to RVSM? It's now every 1000 feet.
