I've seen several AI flight plan assignments above FL600 and FL700 generated by automate AI flight plan creation programs.I haven't check the details with FSX yet, but FS2004 had trouble making any AI aircraft descend properly if it's flight plan was higher than FL360.Of course it bring up the old joke of the pilot who contacted a SOCAL controller - "Request FL600" and the ATC replied - "What makes you think you can climb that high?" to which the pilot replied "Request to DESCEND to FL600"

It's one of those 'real stories' on the internet of one of the first SR-71's going into Palmdale from Hawaii.
