I would be interested to know what they would have been? The aircraft was cold soaked during a Siberian transit as far as I remember and the tanks recorded low fuel temperatures which were mitigated by a reduced flight level being sought.
More or less correct, however, as I recall, the descent requested in the effort to mitigate the low fuel temperature, was severely delayed, thereby leaving the airplane in those much colder ambient temperatures for a longer period.
Other aircraft along more or less the same routing, descended earlier, or, possibly diverted.
