A small bug in 747-8

Recommended Posts

I accidentally discovered recently that you can fly high altitudes with packs off without anny issues. No warning, no release of oxygen masks as in 747-400. Just the white text informing that packs is off.

Not a bug.  If you expect to loss pressurization immediately it will not happen.. The outflow doors will be almost closed by the system on high altitude so any loss of pressurization will happen gradually. You can look at the EICAS pages and you will see the cabin altitude to rise slowly around 200 feet.

Better to ask here first since I might be wrong (which was the case here) 🙂
