What should I do?

Hi. I am flying from EGLL to YSSY in a BA B787-9, but I have none enough fuel. What should I do?

Location:

Anyone pls help? I am really near to YPDN

You can try landing in YBBN but the closer you get the lighter you are so you might just make it

OK. I have tried to plan to land on YBBN but I realized that I have no enough fuel, too. I will prefer to land at YPDN

You should make it to YSSY looking at the 22% you have left. Safest option is to divert though.

You could land at Alice Springs (YBAS)

Given your position, your best bets are probably to land at either Darwin or Cairns (YPDN or YBCS) and refuel there.

But there is no enough RW length. So that’s why I hate Australia

There should be, Singapore Airlines are storing their A380s there

Alice Springs has an 8,000ft runway. Qantas’ Yam Dreaming Boeing 787-9 was delivered to Qantas at Alice Springs whilst flying direct from Everret.
