How much fuel does a jet airplane need? Explained by Captain Joe

Dear friends and followers! Today I´ll be answering a question on "How much fuel does a jet airplane need?". But more regarding trip fuel, contingency fuel, alternate fuel, extra fuel, final reserve and taxi fuel. This is a basic guideline on fuel figures and fuel planning of any commercial jet airplane. How much fuel jet airplanes eventually use, will be discussed in a upcoming video. Thank you very much for watching. The next video will be online next saturday!

roadrunner: Hello Captain, I love you videos!. Could you explain as why the aircraft is boarded from the front towards the back?..would it be more efficient start seating the passengers from the back of the plane towards the front with the first class last?.. Thanks!

Vulcan Viper: I heard of someone who recently returned from America, that the plane was put into a waiting loop. She said she could smell fuel, and noticed that one or more firetrucks were on standby.

Allen: Want to propose a question to Capt Joe: In what occasions does an airplane dump fuel in the air? How often does fuel dumping happen (in your experience)?

Chow Tom: Will "asshole" captains purposefully not have extra fuel to declare fuel emergency faster and get on the ground faster? Assuming the emergency fuel is actually needed

Ben Kettle: Love the Alaska airlines mini plane! Represent

Aung Thet: Did you do fuel dumping during flight and where can you do it?

jitterball: The beauty of metric system is that 1 tonne is 1000 kg and that's 1000 liters, 1 liter is 1000 cubic cementers or about 20 drops of water. Don't need to look anything up, it's all the stuff that teachers taught us in elementary school.

Pavle Pajic: Avin i padne jer se spara na svemu pocev od odrzavanja pa do goriva dakle ni u ludilu ne sedam u te olupine

Leonardo S. B.: "there are a FUEL more details about" 😂😂

Usman Sultan: Hello Captain Joe 😊 i want to share my experience as a flight dispatcher, after i'm done for briefing PIC and from information that i gave to him, he need extra fuel for traffic at destination and bad weather reason. And for Boeing 737-500 i gave him 1.000 lbs fuel for extra with my calculation for duration is 40 untill 50 minutes. So, based on your experience as a Captain, i need your opinion about my decision 😊 Thanks
