Thai flight 649 at FL430?

Aloha! I took a quick look at today's Thai 649 from FUK-BKK and noticed that it was listed as flying at FL430. I believe this is above the maximum cruising altitude for the 333. Is this a quirk with the flight tracking software? Is this flight flown with something other than a 333? Or something else?

Itll be a FR24 glitch with the ADSB data.

On the 24th TG649 was operated with a 787-9 that has a ceiling of 43,000 feet, though the Flightradar24 data seems a bit erratic on the level for a period, there is a stable part at 43,000. On the 23rd the flight was flown with an A330-300 that had a max flight level at 41,000 feet.
