Almost didn’t make it

Soooo I just flew my longest flight ever from John F. Kennedy International to Sydney Kingsford International in a Boeing 787-9. I had to put no passengers and no cargo just to make the trip. I was in emergency fuel at around 8000 agl in the very back of the queue. I honestly don’t believe I had enough fuel to even divert so I just kept going. This was not intended at all. I just barley made it before all my fuel was gone. Moral of the story if you fly from New York better of using the a380 or 747 from Qantas if you want to make it.

Noice, I was going to London to Sydney, but I couldn’t due to the Fuel Tanks not being big enough.

Once again, your topic belongs in this thread

You can make a topic in the #screenshots-and-videos category showing your flight though!

This sound like you are just begging be to fly the 767 on this route. Challenge accepted.


Good job but depending on how fast you were going you should have been able to make it without running out of fuel.

What was your highest cruising Alt?

FL360 the entire way

That was my flight plan. If you can make it in a 767 without stopping you have my respect and admiration.

767 has 20 hours of fuel roughly. And you should’ve gone to FL400 would’ve used less fuel
