Castaway Question

So I recently watched the movie “Castaway”, with Tom Hanks. In the movie, he gets on a plane from Memphis, TN, to Maylasia I think. Or someplace over there. Well, the plane goes down near Tahiti from fuel loss (or something). I have already tried it, but I have had no clear answer. He is either on the A300 or A310 though. The A300 would not make it at all near to the destination. I don’t even think that the A310 would. What are your thoughts?

(I made this topic to start a discussion about aviation, not movies or anything like that)

Not really suited to the forum, sorry!
