No, it's better. The higher miles per gallon you get the better. It's like city driving and highway driving. You are going to get more miles per gallon on the highway then in the city.

thats what i wuld have thought. I just read that backwards. Seems weird though, since in the King AIR 200 we get about 3 nm to the gallon in cruise (and of course significantly less during climb.)

according to te below table the 737-300 at FL 350 and 62,000 KG would get a little better than 1 NM per gallon. once agian, thats cruise.

Taking off at 64,000KG (MGTW?) and climbing to that altitude from SL, would burn 650 gallons over a distance of 187 NM (.3 NMPG)

the above example would be most applicable to a relatively long range flight (high cruiseing alt and high weight)

Remember though that "cost in fuel" and "cost to fly" (as your topic stated the latter) are two very different things. The operating cost of an aircraft is far higher than just the fuel, maintanance alone would be as much money again and we still don't have any staff, nor have we paid a single landing fee / handling charge / navigation charge, etc....
