They were ferrying the SP empty back to Teheran, and had filed a cruise altitude of 43,000 feet. No other airliner can do that, no way.

I remember a flight I did on the flight deck of a 757. I specifically requested whether in the flight from London Heathrow to Edinburgh all of 1hr or so we could top 40,000. The captain said he would give it a go but it would be close. As we tagged the autopilot up to 40,000 we touched it for about two minutes before starting the descent. Probably cost BA considerable more fuel, but oil was cheaper then Smile

why would local baro settings matter above transition alt?
* See the AIM, Section 7-2-2 regarding Lowest Usable Flight Levels with local altimeter settings lower than 29.93"hg (1013.2MB)

Surely my GPS could not have been off that much. Can anyone explain what might have been going on?
