depending on the aircraft, that's not a big deal at all.

If you're talking a King Air, yeah. If you're talking a 737, probably not.

In a 737 that's like 3 minutes worth of fuel; and the regs require them to carry at least 45 minutes reserve, so you're probably in good shape. If you were in a Cessna 172 then there was reason for concern.

Last time I flew a single-engine Cessna, we weren't calculating fuel burn in lbs per hour, hahahaha.

Time to lighten the load... Start with the little sh!t sitting behind me that has kicked my seat back for the last 45 minutes then take his mother that is too busy trying to read up on who Kaitlyn Jenner is dating to stop him, despite multiple requests from me.

If you need to lighten up more, move on to the woman sitting in the middle seat that has now gone to her overhead storage bag 3 times during the flight.

Not enough yet?

PLEASE take the guy that not only used half of a bottle of cologne, but by the sounds of the way he is coughing, just may have the plague.

Another one? Take the guy that will not leave the flight attendant alone so she can attend to others. Trust me buddy, you're not getting anywhere with her.

Two more for you... the two women who are talking non-stop over each other. Yes, I can hear you over my noise reducing headphones. None of us really care that Pam thinks her boss is gay or that Jackie found her boyfriend passed out sitting on the can and that he threw up in the shower.

The only time you can have too much fuel on an aircraft is when it's on fire...

LOL, I was on a similar type jet. Short flight, but coming into Raleigh, a storm developed right over the airport. We held and held and held. Finally diverted to GSO because we got to minimums. Right as we touched down RDU opened back up.@$##$

It was a PITA because the carrier did not have an account with flight service. Pilot was joking about taking up a collection to buy fuel and get out of there.

Years ago when I was taking flying lessons, my instructor told me there are three things you can never use.

1 The runway behind you.

2 the air above you

3 the fuel you left in the tank at the airport.
