It seems that FF used BGR as a refueling stop on all its Trans-Atlantic flights. Everyone I know who flew on FF from either SVO or TLV had to make fuel stops at BGR. Why is it?
I remember reading somewhere in other forums that they did so because fuel in BGR was cheaper than at JFK. But if they filled up their tanks, would a fully loaded B747 be able to land about an hour later without dumping it?
Also, those trans-Atlantic flights bound for JFK were always considered "non-stop", but always stopped at BGR for fuel. Was it an accident everytime that fuel ran out so quick? Or did FF did it intentionally?
I'm just trying to make some sense out of it, hopefully somebody can help.
