I can also choose on hot days to take less fuel but fly higher, up to FL450
Why fly so high SSG. Its much safer flying at lower levels. What if you have an explosive decompression. By being so higher you are reducing the safety margin for a safe emergency descent. As you have said your boss would much rather be safe than save money.
