BAW 282 - 54,500 altitude?

I was tracking one of my flights this morning and noticed that BA flight 282, an Airbus a380 was cruising at 54,500’. I logged into my Flightradar24 site and found the same information on altitude.

The flight had been cruising at approximately 39,000, but shortly after checking in with Gandar, the altitude very quickly increased.

Any thoughts? Don’t think the information is correct, but it is weird.

I did take a screen shot and would like to post it. How would I go about that?



Not uncommon, don’t worry about it.

Side effect of UFO tractor beam perhaps?

You’ll have to upload the picture to a hosting site (I recommend Imgur) and post the link here. Use the link for forums.
