Why is a 747-300 less fuel efficient than a 747-400?

08 July 2019 - 02:09 AM

I rarely post here so I am not the smartest XD

 

anyways I was testing out whether a 747-400 would be worse than a 747-300 and turns out I was wrong. I am not sure why. For both aircraft I chose engines that had the least amount of fuel used (circled in red). For a 747-400 it has a slightly higher fuel consumption than the -300 but has better economics. Any reason why? Sorry if it is a dumb question.

Now yes it is obv on what is the seat config so I uploaded that. It's almost the same with the difference being the 747-400 has first class seats and the 747-300 doesn't and has an extra 10 more seats in economy

Fuel consumption

Regarding Fuel Consumption for four-engine aircraft (maybe two-engine aircraft as well) is it in total or is it per engine? Attached File  Capture.PNG   540.69KB   0 downloads

 

For example for this 747-400, its about 73k. Is it for all 4 engines its 73k, or each engine has a fuel consumption of 73k? 

 

 

Same can be said for the 777-200LR

Thank you in advance, and sorry if this is the wrong thread, I rarely post here :P 

 

Thanks and have a good day/night :-)
