Fully loaded to the max you should be able to get to at least FL280-300. If you're not overloaded, then what's indicated on the annunciator above the PFD... should be indicating THR REF and the EICAS should indicate CLB... one other item not mentioned is your speed... should be well above 300 kts above 10,000.

Also important is your outside air temperature for climb performance. Are you using external weather?Cheers,

Can anyone explain to me why it is that I struggle to get my 747 above FL240. I set the VNAV correctly & whichever method I use 'VS', VNAV' or 'FL CHG' I cannot get much higher.There must be something I'm doing wrong in either my pre-flight or in-flight setup.Any suggestions?RegardsDavid Williamson
