Displays Control panel vs RVSM

Is it true that display control panel failure in flight is NO RVSM? As the altimeter is no longer operating independent as it uses barometric settings from the other side.

Hi Matt,

This is interesting thought. Dispatch with complete EFIS control panel U/S is not possible (at least according to the MEL I have available).

QRH doesn't state anything regarding NO RVSM. You still have two independent altimeters with common barometric setting from the operational EFIS control panel.

I would say that it is a grey area:)
