747 Not Descending

Recommended Posts

I was flying from Dubai to Heathrow and was preparing to descend, i put 16000ft into the Altitude selector and waited till T/D. as soon as i got to T/D i clicked on hold so that the place would descend but it didnt. It just stayed at 36000ft. I tried using the V/S Selector then pressing Altitude hold again but every time i did that the plane would just level off. Whats going on

That’s exactly what altitude hold does... it holds your attitude. You need to remain in vnav, vs, or flight level change to descend.
