I have a question.
So, I’ve recently flew Auckland to Doha. I departed with 100% of fuel on board at 20:13, and I woke up at 5:17 AM. I checked my fuel percentage, and it said It’s at 27% and it said I don’t have enough fuel for the flight. I actually had to DITCH (you heard me right) and actually add fuel. (Since IF “water” doesn’t even count as water, it’s literally ground).
How do I conserve fuel on these long flights? How is it possible that I lost so much fuel?
I should have had at least 50% of fuel by that time. How did I lose so much?
I was cruising at FL370 at M0.87.
Any tips so that I conserve my fuel for the flight? Please answer below.
