I don't have any specific data for the -35F, but the DC9-30's approximate cruise fuel consumption is 4050 kg/h.

Flying the DC-9-21/-41 and the -33F in SAS,we used 2400 kgs/hr as a rule of thumb when flight planning.600 kgs/15 mins holding and 700 kgs for an approach from 3000 feet followed by a go-around to 3000 feet again.

Thanks for your that, FBU_4EVER, as you drew my attention to me not making myself clear in my first post!  Nuts 4050 kg/hr is for "max. cruise", while about 2400 kg/hr is for economical cruise. Sorry for the confusion!

G'day mate! No problem! I thought it was a typo so I didn't mention it.BTW,we use the same rule of thumb for the MD-80 and -90: 2800 kgs for the -80 and 2400 for the -90.
