40,000 feet……seriously?

Last month on a flight back to Dallas from Chicago I had the pleasure of being on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The plane was absolutely beautiful and still had the smell of a new plane. About 10 minutes after we took off the pilot came on introduced himself and spoke to us about the route and a few other things. One of those things was how high we were flying which was 40,000 feet. I was a little surprised because usually flights (at least the ones I take) are flying at about 31,000-34,000 feet. I don’t recall any other time where I was flying over that, let alone 40,000 feet.

Maybe the Dreamliner is more efficient flying at that level or perhaps there is some other reason.

  • Do you pay attention when the captain says how high you are flying?
  • Do you recall flying over 40,000?
  • I would be curious if any readers ever flew on the Concorde and how high that flew.

I look forward to reading your comments.
