If we account that the total fuel consumption from engine start to engine shutdow was 6,2 tons and that the engines were running for arround 1h30 the average fuel burn per hour is ~ 4,14 ton.
And as he said, 6.2 tons is the fuel consumption of the full one hour flight, including take off, climb and cruise.
That would be world record and would allow it to fly more than 20 hours but he said before the takeoff that 1 hour burns 6.2 tonnes not the flight itself which is higher than reported here. However the flight was almost full of employees, no children
I am not sure what to make of this. Firstly you claimed that there were "about 250 persons onboard", yet the video states from 13:43 that "... every seat is filled" . The aircraft itself seats 324 passengers. Now you claim that "he said before the takeoff that 1 hour burns 6.2 tons, not the flight itself. The captain states from 7:32 of the video that"...it will take us one hour to reach Paris, with a fuel consumption of 6.2 tons of petrol, which is very low..... "
Please understand that I am not trying to defend the 4.14 calculation you are questioning. Just curious about the claims you made.
