I want to take a long journey from [VABB] to [CYYZ] Without any interruption until reaching the destination.
Is the fuel sufficient for the trip… ?

Notes…
Plane : B777-200

To calculate everything you need for a long haul, I recommend using https://fpltoif.com/simbrief

It’s easy to use and pretty accurate. Also yeah M.89 is way to fast. That site will give you an accurate speed tho!

Well no problem. But the most important question … Is fuel enough for a trip if the fuel tank is completely full?

Good question but like @Pilot_David19 said 0.89 is wayyyy too fast. Mach 0.84 is the average cruise speed in real life, I wouldn’t be going much faster then that

Make sure to do a Stepclimb so you can reserve fuel.For example for the first 40/50 minutes climb to FL280/300 and so on.

I tried it but not all attempts are correct

Maybe 114.000 kg of fuel should be enough.
