A couple of questions regarding a recent flight to Aus. I have been flying the 787 recently and have wanted to complete a fly to Australia. I have noticed some rocking when at 38000ft, flying at 0.85 Mach.
Reading everywhere else I have tried everything, people have been saying about it being heavy and that leads me to my next question. An 18ish hour flight I would expect to fill 100% on the fuel whilst minimising passengers and having no cargo.
Has anyone had this issue with the rocking and can anyone give some advice regarding flight time, fuel total and cruising details for such a long flight
Thanks all for your replies. So I checked back and the weight was on max fuel (101,322kg) and pax (20,914kg). Whether this is the issue I don’t know, but then again, I am also lost about how quickly I should climb to cruising altitude, my actual cruising altitude and my fuel requirements. Anyone able to help out?
