Just curious...I have spoke with several different pilots about how much airliners land with on average. I know this varies based on Size/Routes/Weather/ATC Flow/Etc. Just curious what the ballpark averages are for various sized planes like:

737/A320 Family

Quoting united319 (Thread starter):

As you said, depends on various factors. For the 747 I fly it is between 8 and 12 tons remaining fuel.

On a good day:

CRJ-200: 1700-2200 lbs.
CRJ-700/900: 2500-3000 lbs. (yes, despite the size and weight difference, they burn practically the same.)

Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.

We have a minimum fuel remaining on landing. If the actual amount is less then an investigation is required. I personally have never seen the fuel this low, but it happens. All amounts in kgs.

A318 1100
A319 1230
A320 1210
A321 1500
B737-400 1270
B767-300 2370
B747-400 4870
B777-200 2800
B777-300 3000

Normal arrival fuel here is about twice these figures in normal good weather with our nearby alternate open.

On a very loose average, the 737 lands with between 5000 and 8000 pounds of fuel on board.

My posts/replies are strictly my opinion and not that of any company, organization, or Southwest Airlines.

ERJ (135/145's) - at my carrier we have historically tended to land between 2.0 - 2.4 on the gas..... that said, as of the coming month we are shifting to a new way to fuel plan at my company.. it's much more in line with the EU style as oppose to historic US style... as such we will start landing with less gas on most days... not all...... it will be much more based on historic averages, current weather, and expected delays for volume.. all in all it is in theory supposed to be much more accurate and save a substantial amount of money.... we shall see

"Sonny, did we land? or were we shot down?"
