Narrative:
On 16 April 2014, a Boeing 777-200ER experienced a “FUEL DISAGREE” system message while flying from Singapore to Johannesburg. The flight crew received a warning message from the aircraft’s Engine Indicating and Crew Alerting System that there had been a higher than normal fuel consumption. The flight crew monitored the situation and confirmed a higher than normal fuel consumption rate.

Following consultation with the airline’s maintenance centre, the flight crew decided to return to Singapore. The aircraft landed in Singapore without incident. Subsequent inspection revealed an indication problem with the aircraft’s fuel quantity indication system.

Investigations showed the aircraft had departed with approximately 127 tonnes of fuel, instead of 86 tonnes as displayed to the flight crew by the FQIS, a 41 tonne overload. This was due to a system failure and an erroneous verification of the fuel quantity before departure.
