    Flight 370
    From: Gary LaPook
    Date: 2014 Mar 23, 16:41 -0700
    According to Bloomberg, the plane weighed 447,000 pounds and carried 108,000 pounds of fuel at takeoff.


    "The Boeing 777 was carrying 49.1 metric tons (54.1 tons) of fuel when it departed Kuala Lumpur, for a total takeoff weight of 223.5 tons, according to Subang Jaya-based Malaysian Air."


    If the Bloomberg information is correct, the takeoff weight of the plane was 447,000 pounds (223.5 tons US tons) and carried 108,200 pounds of fuel. Subtract the fuel weight from the takeoff weight and you find that the operating empty  weight was 338,800 pounds (call it 339,000). Looking at the cruise range planning chart produces a range of 3,450 NM (3,970 SM.) See attached chart.
