Fuel penalties

You should know that fuel calculation is very important in a commercial flight. When you get more fuel than necessary, your plane will consume more fuel, and when you get less, your flight will become risky. To avoid fuel penalties, you should keep the following in mind:

(1) When getting fueling, you should fill the wing tanks first, if much fuel is not needed, you should leave the centre fuel tank empty. If your wing fuel is 96% or less full and there is more than 12% fuel in the centre tank, FDR will charge a penalty.

(2) The amount of fuel in the wings should always be balanced. If there is a fuel difference of more than 10% of full capacity between the wings, FDR will charge a penalty.

(3) At the end of the flight, FDR will look at your remaining fuel and make the following evaluation:
