Ok cause on Simbrief it says

WARNING: FLIGHT TIME EXCEEDS AIRCRAFT RANGE
PAYLOAD/CARGO LIMITED BY MTOW

I don’t use SimBrief so I wouldn’t know.

You mean kilometers, right? Cuz 11,750nmi is like over half of the Earth’s circumference.

Yes, my apologies.

Use a performance/perf/fuel factor of -10 and a cruise offset of -2000 with the A333 in IF. That may get you better fuel. I’ll run it with my configuration real quick and see for you

I might have to over MTOW

Then don’t fly if you’re over MTOW

@Populeux_Music this is what I came up with using the fuel factor I’ve used with success on the A330 previously. I make no guarantees for something this long but it is well within the 6350nm range. I’d be happy to send you the PDF dispatch file and the xml for you to use in FPLtoIF.

Ive flown MTOW before

It’s not recommended.

This is the route i generated

VTBSEGLL_XML_1584503765.xml

I know, the time i flew over MTOW on take off i started at the blast pad and wheels left the ground above the threshhold on the other side

You won’t have to go over MTOW but you’ll be close. I used a Zero Fuel Weight of 347500 (well shy of the 379100Lbs that IF allows which is actually over the 242t A330’s MZFW of 376990lbs )

Ok, I will use my route i generated.
