    About an hour to destination, I found out the range of the A 321 is what I thought. (FS unlimited fuel option saves the day)

    A fine flight to Portland David. I like the foul weather approach and the NW A-321.

    Not sure how cold it was when I landed. Definitely a foggy day!

    Ah! It was a Airbus fuel-test flight
    On the other hand, that foggy approach is great!

    Big time fuel test flight! I finally took a look at the range of the A-321, 3,697 miles (5,950 km). Air miles from San Diego, CA to Portland, Maine 3,149 miles (5,068 km) I figure at 33,000 ft at normal cruise and a tailwind for most of the flight, I should have arrived with enough to spare. Granted I don't have the performance charts for an A-321 to see based on all the factors (included weight) what the actual range for those conditions would be.

    It was a fun flight and fun approach anyway!

    Albeit the result of complicated computation, I think FS allows for a about accurate fuel consumption. Fuel flow is a value tunable inside the aircraft. cfg, or fuel reservoirs, and even some aircraft weight
    Attaching those passages used in aircraft.cfg (text file; normally virus-free): weight, fuel flow.txt
