How did your fuel work out? I did PHNL-KSFO and barely made it. I can't remember the exact numbers, but it worked out to about 30 minutes of fuel remaining by the time I touched down. Definitely not enough to make it to an alternate with reserves!

My first attempt was not so good as I blew the fuel calcs and flew at 11000. My second trip I loaded her up full of fuel and flew it at FL250. I figure I had about 60 minutes plus or minus in reserve. I agree you have to watch you consumption with this bird. :o
