With regard to the evidence of cavitation in the area of the fuel pumps, as cited in the AAIB interim report:

"This could be indicative of either a restriction in the fuel supply to the pumps or excessive aeration of the fuel."

What could cause excessive aeration of the fuel, particularly when, by all accounts, it had been subjected to cold temperatures for an extended period of time?
