RE: Taxi Fuel Burn Experiment

I know that, at USAir, they encourage rolling take-offs whenever possible and say they use less fuel. Ideally you'd contact the tower before the hold short line and be issued a teakeoff clearance without ever having to hold short, taxi onto the runway, and be off.

Will The 748 Use The "super" Suffix?
