Voluntary unpaid leave of 3 weeks.

The flight times are around 13 hr in winter. Flights have neither been going out at MTOW nor MZFW, so no particular performance penalties. It’s more a problem in summer if wet, 07R (or left), high...

Yes, but the A359 is 76T lighter than the 773ER, yet carries only 10T less payload over a 15 hr sector, whilst burning 25% less gas.

275T MTOW - 95T Fuel Required - 138T BW = 42T available payload.
