On the extreme condition: Tri-class 1/3 Pax and Max Fuel (ZFW: 454,108lbs, Fuel: 382,336lbs), "INSUFFUCIENT FUEL" hasn't appeared.It seems that something wrong within 1.10 patch, I hope it will be corrected as soon as possible.Sincerely,Kan-ichiro Fushihara

Check the amount of fuel is estimated in the PERF page at your DEST. If it is below the amount you have inputted for your reserve than you will get that message. You could be putting in too high of an amount for your reserve or not enough fuel for the trip.

Dear Dennis,Thank you for your kind instructions.I logically understand. In this case, at the start, if KJFK FUEL on the VNAV CRZ page is smaller than RESERVES on the PERF page, I will get this message.Only, it seems that the fuel consumption on the 1.10 is a little greater than on the 1.02.
