I flew “the Lufthansa whale” from Frankfurt to Auckland airport. Departing with full fuel, 455 passengers and 21 thousand pounds of cargo. The flight took around 21 hours long and we landed at Auckland with almost empty fuel. I have used the step climb method as usual with long flights and the cruise speed was mach 0.85. We had almost clear skies for the whole flight and we departed during sunrise and arrived in the morning.
