Cost index is dependant on a number of factors. With the current economic climate, company's have more then likely modified there operations in the last year or so. Rob

Hi Harry,Unfortunately it's not that easy. Flight crew can determine the CI from 2 referencepoints. One is the dispatchbriefing, where infact the flight crew gets its CI. Two is de flight crew operating manual. It gives for the particular aircraft which the crew is flying the companyrules for the CI.I can, later this day, give you a example of a other KLM aircraft, as I have access to that. However unfortunately not for the 747. However, you can get an idea as I will give you an impression of KLM's CI. It wil be about 23:00Z, not earlier than that.Kind regards, PatrickEdit:With KLM there are a few things which are considered. I am not allowed to make a screenhot of the table of CI, what was my intention. However the things what are considered are, Time, Fuel and Fuel + weight and optimum altitudes. There are also tables for off-optimum altitudes, if that occures. There is a standard CI for normal operation which starts with a CI from 50. From there dispatch and the pilot calculate the CI with steps of 50 to a maximum of 250.The CI calculated from the table is only used when indicated in the flightplan or extraordinary situations arrise.
