Just in case you thought it was easy...

Here's a quick photo of our instrument displays while on climb out of Larnaca this morning... note that the available fuel is less than what is needed. Obviously we finally made it, but only because we went high and burned less fuel. The current endurance shown is based on the higher fuel burn at low altitude and on climb, and when combined with the lower groundspeed while on climb, life looks pretty scary for half an hour or so..
