Abraham Bhekisintu Zulu Experianced turbulant weather now and then enroute, however managed to keep the aircraft together and landed safely within scheduled time. The overspeeds are due to the presents of that turbulant weather when it changes now and then.
Dieter Magnet Dieter Magnet - 13/10/2016 There is a note to this flight: Flight Steps required! You stayed at FL340 the entire way. Please step climb (where indicated) on your next flight otherwise your PIREP will be rejected.
Dieter Magnet Also see previous PIREP comment.
Abraham Bhekisintu Zulu Your analysis of this flight is incorrect. From 13:59 to 23:35, this flight was flying at FL380. It not true that it was on FL340 all the time. I have complied with step flying on this flight. Please correct it.
Dieter Magnet Your log shows FL340. It does not state or show FL380 anywhere? You need to change your cruise FL in smartCARS when step climbing otherwise it will not capture your climb. Please do this in future. I will overturn this rejection but monitor future flights for compliance.
