SK 4713 OSL-FCO FL 250?

Wed Jul 25, 2012 8:56 am

Hello all,


I just noticed that LN-TUK, an SAS 737-700 operating flight SK 4713 from Oslo (OSL) to Rome (FCO) is nearly 45 minutes into its flight and maintaining 25,000 feet. Is that normal? I thought all SK European flights on 737NGs out of OSL usually cruise at FL 360/380/400. It is about to overfly Malmo in Sweden, does anyone have any idea what's going on?

They are still at FL250. Will be a nice view over the Alps.

My guess would be possible promblems with the on-board emergency oxygen system.
Aircraft not fitted with pax oxygen are limited to FL250. SK probably MEL released LN-TUK with the FL250 restriction.

No it is on his return leg, but only at FL240, as it is heading north.
