When planning a flight, the pilots calculate the fuel load, allowing for diversions, delays, etc. While listening to an ATC recording of 30 minute taxi times at JFK, I wondered whether a plane has ever completely run out of fuel while taxiing.
I suspect that it probably would be after arrival, because before take-off, the plane has plenty of fuel.
I'm not talking about running out of fuel in flight: obligatory Gimli Glider link.
I'm aware that at least one Concorde flight landed on fumes, but I think it still made it to the gate.
I found this United Airlines flight from August 2022, which was pre-takeoff: in that case, after 3 hours, the plane returned to the gate to refuel, and then taxied for another few hours before the flight was finally cancelled.
I'm looking for more extreme instances of that story:
Has a commercial transport plane ever completely run out of fuel while taxiing?
