Bart Simpson said:Wouldn't the PIC always have to have his/her release amended when there is a change of fuel?
Think about it:
When there is a change of fuel (more or less, don't matter) there is a change in weight
AND a change in weight means a change in burn
AND a change in burn means a different min fuel number
is he/she really legal to go when the min numbers change?
But whatever, I'm happy as long as my FE doesnt crap out on me.
DX Rick said:I never understood why the captain has to notify us if they were taking MORE fuel. But I was never one to argue with the captain. What ever he wants, he can have. No need to argue over everything like some dx'ers feel the need to.
He wants to over load the plane with fuel so he can't push....he can go do the carpet dance.
RVSM said:Most folks think 500 lbs is no big deal. Consider this
Roughly 3000 flts per day. Fuel average around $1.90
3000x500/6.8x1.90=$419,117.65 per day!
Heck yes I am going to question 500lbs.
