Boeing 737, ZK-TLL , Incorrect configuration (fuel management), Auckland, 8 June 2022
Occurrence Date
On 8 June 2022, a Boeing 737 on a cargo flight from Sydney landed at Auckland International Airport with little fuel remaining in the wing tanks, and no fuel being fed to the engines from the centre tank. The circumstances reported at the time of opening this investigation related to:
- pre-take-off procedures
- consideration of weather conditions that could necessitate more time in the air (and thereby fuel use)
- operation and monitoring of the fuel system during flight
- post-flight fuel corroboration.
