Over Russia has been RVSM FLs for some years now... But it would be nice to have feet and QNH below TL.

Only western part of Russia is transitioning to feet/qnh after 3rd December.

Define "western" !?

How would the transition be handled for a flight crossing the boundary ?

There is no transition, because flightlevel in feet stays flightlevel in feet.

oh nice to hear. It will be a lot easier for us in the Approach, no need to deal with QFE and add feet
Hopefully China will go to Feet instead of meteres
Anyway, this is if I ever return to fly one day
