Offspring is doing an aviation degree and asks the following as part of an assignmentDo you know if itís possible to find/where I would find information on the A330-300 and its general fuel burns? Specifically for a flight Sydney-Hong Kong-Sydney. Yes, I know that it is very variable due winds, loads, etc. but just looking for a general figure. I know Qantas do that route with that plane so itís possible the info is out there somewhere in the realms of internet land.Any drivers able to answer much appreciated. Thank you.

The SYD-HKG vv trip fuel is about 54.5T in the RR-powered A333 at MTOW, average wind close to nil.

Rough fuel burn 6T/hr is what I use.

Given the number of CX A333 flights operating this route it may be worth posting your question in the Fragrant Harbour forum also.

divided by .795 to convert Weight to litres
international flights do use Specific Gravity of the day but .795 is the stock standard

Is your offspring also considering becoming a pilot with his aviation degree?

make sure you get a reference for those numbers, i dont think an anonymous internet poster on a website forum would cut it.
