What reserves did you entered in the FMC?If your FMC calculates the total fuel on landing will be less then the reserves figure you put in, it will show you that message.Normal reserves on such a route is 24000LBS.PS. Also sign your post with your real usernames, because it is part of the forum rules! (Just to inform you)Cheers,---------------Stefan van Hierden>|
