Can't set cruise altitude

Question: CRJ can't reach cruising altitude. Set FL380 climbing on 345 and stop. Trying V/S - 100-400 fpm aircraft is slowing down and descending. It depends of wind?

It can fly FL430 if it's very light. The maximum altitude entry in the FMS is 41000 according to the FMS manual.

 

If I fly a TBM930 on High altitude IFR, MSFS assigns altitude up to 31,000. If I fly a Citation Longitude, it assigns altitude between 42-44,000. If I fly an A320, MSFS never assigns altitude over 39,000 feet. What I'm saying here is that if MSFS observes maximum altitudes for those aircraft, it should for yours as well.

You might simply be too heavy for that flight level.
