Strange Altitude for a A320


This A320 caught my eye on the radar over Laurel, MS for having a cruising altitude of only 9800ft. Whats going on here? … /KIAH/KCLT


It looks like there are lots of storms near where the flightpath. Maybe they are staying low to avoid the bad weather.


My guess would be a pressurization problem.


Makes no sense… CLT is a AWE maintenance base. Turn around a go back.


The flight operated IAH-CLT … Looks like it got to 13.800 feet and had to descend to FL100… Almost certainly a pressurization problem.


If it was a problem they experienced it 10 minutes after departure. It’s just as certain it isn’t a problem since, as I said, CLT is a maintenance base for AWE.
