During a flight, the actual wind is 20 kt stronger than forecasted, as specified below. Based on the parameters listed and on the attached performance table, what will be the change in air distance per 1 000 kg of fuel?

Weight: 150 000 kg
TAS: 369 kt
Forecast wind: 45 kt (HWC)
Actual wind: 65 kt (HWC)

  • A
    0 NM
  • B
    110 NM
  • C
    335 NM
  • D
