Obscure Question on Fuel Usage
« on: January 19, 2021, 10:58:06 pm »
Is it safe to assume that fuel usage for any given aircraft on any given flight is directly proportional to route length?  That is, there is no increased fuel usage for takeoffs and climb to altitude?  Obviously, this would be a sizable penalty for the jumbo fuel guzzlers on short routes as they have more takeoffs and landings.
