Thank you for replying... I quote "No disrespect mercurydancer, but you would have no idea if the PIC was a "minimalist" or not and there is no reason why it should make you "feel more confident". That is very true - I wouldnt know the PIC but I may be aware of company policy towards fuel (and I am not a Ryanair basher) or other possibly more unacceptable management cultures.

As Ive said elsewhere, my interest in aviation is the parallels between aviation safety and my own field, which is safety in healthcare. I am very well aware of situations where professionals can disregard their own judgement for fear of upsetting the status quo, be that management or other professionals. This topic does appear to revolve around a professional judgement made amongst conflicting influences. As a cross-section of opinion about the elements which come together to form such a crucial decision as to how much fuel to take on board it has been fascinating and illustrating.

Last time I looked the fuel tankers at EMA for Ryanair had big Texaco signs all over them!
