Normally 50. Sometimes a higher cost index is used (150 or 250) for on time arrival.

>Must have changed a lot in the last say 2 months since fuel>prices plummeted.Michael J.No, still the same CI figures I used some years ago.Even if fuel would cost you nothing, an increase of the CI is also limited by Mmo.CI 250 is realy close to it already.Regards,Harry

>Normally 50. Sometimes a higher cost index is used (150 or>250) for on time arrival.hmmm interesting, wouldnt it be more feasible to use the RTA function of the MCDU? I mean wouldnt fuel burn be a bit more, using a high cost index constantly, instead of allowing the plane to calculate a speed that would reach on time instead of flying constantly at a high speed calculated by the high CI?

Yes, cost index 50 for normal operations.Higher cost indexes are used if we need to fly faster to arrive on time (because of a delay or more than average headwind for example).
