Never mind that, what about the EK0083 to GVA on 14 Dec? Not so much as a squeak, anywhere. Frankly, I am amazed.

Why do people find it necessary to air dirty laundry in public? There are private forums in other sites to discuss things.
A sad refection....

Well, now that you asked, there were tales of long taxi times, assigned FLs that were not in the flight plan, and dodgy weather at GVA.
But surely, if you do the miles to go vs. fuel remaining calcs, you donít reach a point where you get an eicas fuel low level (donít quote me on whether thatís a warning or a caution,itís been a long day) message when executing a missed approach. Perhaps an earlier diversion was called for?
The planned alternate was binned as being too far away, so the crew elected to go to LYS, called mayday on finals, and had 1800kg left in the tanks at the gate. After a quick refuel, they were off again. Alls week that ends well.
Tea and biscuits anyone?

Crabs! And the fat allowance was alightened a bit .....
That's what most are after in GVA after all, aren't they??

To be fair, Europe around the alps can get to you!

But if you'd stick to the perfect CCI and SOPs, this would certainly never happen!

What you speak of are either 'tales' or the truth. If it's the second one, then you must be very close to those involved. But unless you were there, speculation or rumor isn't particularly helpful.

Way too much 'trial by media (social or otherwise)' going on these days.

1800 kg’s is more than enough in a little jet. Roughly 18 minutes in a 777-300 and 21 minutes in 777-200at cruise speed.
