fuel burn
« on: February 03, 2019, 10:02:27 PM »
According the manual its possible to see the fuel burn of a route in kg.. Maybe if's outdated, i can't find it...

Aging aircraft needs up to 5% more fuel... Is there a view for this?

It’s not linear and frankly as it is our increasing mx costs (and subsequently unbearable mx cost for ac in fine age 24-32yr) as is already covers what would account for “extra fuel”

Fuel is practically impossible to monitor, since you only see the fuel costs, which depends on the fuel price and your aircraft's load, which is different for all of your flights. But you can see in the Aircraft Information page its "average fuel burn" and note the old aircraft has a higher average compared to a newer aircraft of the same model.

Does this mean that the max aircraft range is also decreasing over time?

It decreases just a little bit.

nope. new vs seven years old - same fuel/hour.

Did someone check the screenshog from manual? I cant found the information which is shown there...

AFAIK not on there but if there is added fuel penalty in the future for using older aircraft then maintenance curve needs to be made significantly less sharp as it’s already expensive to operate aircraft past 2D (16Y) and prohibitively so past 3D (24Y)

I mean "old" an aircraft at least 20 years old, that's when you'll see higher fuel burn.
