737-800 holding speed?

140,000 lbs, at FL350.

Curious what speeds you guys use. We have three different speeds ("fly whatever you want").

I've held at FL350 over ENE (Kennebunk) inbound to JFK in a B747-400 before.

Ok... well in that case I think I would hold at M .76 in the 738 at FL350.
However when I look it up in the Lido route manual, it says >FL340, holding speed normal condititons: M .83, which will be above Mmo..

FMS...CDU...Hold Page...Best Hold Speed...Dial it in the MCP speed window

I'm a true pilot, you can tell

Usually equate to somewhere along the lines of best endurance speed, which may be below the speed for minimum drag. They all seem to be fairly close to minimum clean speed, however I'm Unsure to what that would be or even equate to at FL350??
