You see many operators trying to duck below. KL643, SWR18, UAE9252, SWR52, BAW85, etc



Thank you very much for your quick response. My friend is on the BA269 so thanks for the info

BA269 & BA275 very low over Scotland right now?

Hi
Looking at these two flights right now and they are at FL200 over Scotland right now. Is this not unusually low considering they have been airborne an hour now? If correct data anyone know why they are still at such a low altitude? Thanks!
