Very Short 737-800 Flight Question

Wed Apr 17, 2013 10:44 am


The other day in work we took an a/c from BCN. We are based in GRO. Just wondering how long would it take for a 737-800 to fly this distance, & around what altitude?

The distance is around 60 miles.

Comparing with the UK it's about the same distance from Manchester to Leeds and planes fly past Leeds at 10000ft on approach to Manchester so I wouldn't imagine a plane getting to that altitude if it was flying BCN to/from GRO. Time around 15-20 minutes depending on traffic.
