Author Topic: [-] Variable fuel burn based on pax/cargo loads/fuel onboarded for flight.  (Read 256 times)

Anyone here ever wondered why range is variable but fuel burn (and I don’t mean kg/pax) remains constant? I have.

One needs look no further than shipping companies IRL and why they do stopovers. This is done to both increase possible cargo loaded vs fuel and saving fuel by onboarding less than what would be required for the full length of trip in one leg.

We could carry over these savings to passenger services as well! One can mitigate the effect of low initial and oversupply LF’s by using less fuel when loads are light or trip is shorter. Why must our planes always be topped off to the brim?

Did not know this. Any way to indicate this on aircraft info?

Here already too.
Hover over the question mark right next to the indicated fuel burn consumption.

That's right - I can perceive it by viewing overall and fuel expenses increase as the overall revenues increase, and going down as revenues go down, too.

I did notice, a few GW3 ago, That fuel consuption of A148s was really skyrocketing beyond 1800NM - probably because of the difficulty to take off with all this fuel. Which makes the E model rather moot.
