To be operated on the JNB-JFK-JNB where max fuel saving can be achieved. Prelim figures show a fuel saving in excess of 30000kg per sector vs the A346.
30,000kg x 2 =60,000kg
60,000kg x 365= 21 900,000kg per year on JNB-JFK-JNB
Hot and high performance penalty out of JNB has been taken into consideration.
Wow. I know A340s are notoriously fuel-consuming, but data still shocks me.
