Well I cannot give any details, but if he needed to dump 50 tonnes of fuel to get to MLW, then I guesstimate that he had approximately, roughly or thereabouts, 120 tonnes on board when he departed LHR!

The problem now is that we have a "yes" on the incident, without an explanation. The trouble is, the explanation is mundane.

My reading of the incident is that no "miscalculation" took place.
