A343 fuel burn?

Recommended Posts

Hi, did a flight from Dubai to Sydney and the fuel calculator stated I required 100% full tanks?So prior to departure I checked my EFOB and it was around 15 Tonnes, which I was happy with however, after about 8-9 hours in the air the EFOB had gone up to nearly 60 Tonnes!!!!!!!Anyone know of a fix for this as it's clearly not correct, I have the 'latest' downloaded aircraft from 'my files'Thanks.Mark.
