Thank you. THat is VERY helpful

As you see, we dont get any A310s @ MAN (except Royal Jordainian) We used to get a Cypriot Airways A310-300 but the service was removed post 9/11

Hello Kaddyuk

As a point of interest with wing flex. On the A300/A310, when the fuel quantity contained in the outer wing fuel tanks decrease beyond a certain threshold, the VMO/MMO will automatically decrease.

This due to less weight in the outboard wing to counteract the wing bending force at higher speeds.
You're only as good as your last departure.
