What was the max available in the MCDU (not what you had set)? Also be aware the real A330 is terribly slow on the climb.

A lot of how fast you climb is based on what cost index you have as well. Try a flight with CI of 50 and then one of 35 and see the difference.

Nicolas,Unless you were flying empty, its going to be very difficult to take off and climb straight to the ceiling level.When I asked what was the max available I referred to a value displayed in the CDU under PERF. This will show optimum and recommended max levels.
