A330 Answers to limitations!

Day two of studying for A330 recurrent, and just as advertised--- the answers for those limitation questions posted yesterday.
How well did you do?

If you missed yesterday, you get to play Jeopardy! When you get to questions 29 and 53,  I'm thinking there should be a prize for the most creative question to,"What is No?" If you don't know what Jeopardy is, you'll have no clue as to what I'm talking about. I'm sure that won't be a first...for me either. ;)

  5. Karlene,

    Delta might have non-standard limitations, but FYI the Airbus limitations for max ceiling is 41450ft. This was changed about 2 years ago, to allow more flexibility on metric flight levels over China, which are different from the CIS (Russia) ones.

  6. Thank you Bjorn! I actually left the Delta limitations out and was using only Airbus. We do have other modifications. So thank you on that! I didn't know. But it's good to know.
