To put that into perspective according to the ACAP on Boeings website the 787-9 has a MTOW of 254t and usuable fuel capacity of 101.46t.
From the fuel perspective, they're expecting to burn 5.42t of fuel per hour. Adding up the diversion fuel (my guess is MAN) and contingency I bet they'll have a full tank out of PER.
Great to get those numbers even before the first flight. With OEW of about 128-129t of a usual 787-9 we get something like 20-22t payload. This is tight with 236 pax(and 42 heavy J seats), but we knew this already. Incredible to be able to do it, at all.
