Flew a Cargolux B748 from KIAH to EGPK (Houston to Prestwick, RL flight) last night, but only made it to 40 NM out of EGPK before I woke up finding myself stalling out of 10k on empty.
I took off with my own calculation of 9:25 in fuel, and the trip was to last 7:50. It turns out I was closer than expected when I woke up.
Judging from IF’s fuel figure for the plane, I should’ve had 9-10 hours on board. I did cruise at FL370, and my turbine RPM was hanging around 95-98% as I recall. If it’s calculated @90%, then in the future, I’ll plan lower to accommodate that at this weight.
Someone have info? Thank you!
