Andy,Cost indexes (CIs) vary from aircraft type to aircraft type within a company as well. And is changed periodically to reflect changes in crew, fuel and maintenance costs to name a few. The CI is a very dynamic animal and thus you will hardly find any lists.PS. I know Scandinavian used CI 36 for their NG fleet in 2003.Hope it helps,

A KLM 747-400 Captain told me they use a cost index of anywhere between 100 and 150

Cost indexes for airlines are generally TOP SECRET. Being aware of fuel use planning is obviously a competitive advantage.All but a handful of sims do nothing with the CI, even if they ask you to input it.I usually just set it to 100, and go.* Orest
