Hey guys this question has probably been asked before but can the sharklets do atlantic crossings? im guessing it has to do with load on the aircraft also and wind etc  and if so what fuel factor do you need to put in simbrief if its able to cross pond?

Having crossed the pond in a none sharklet. Using both additional center tanks is very helpfull and passengers are not that usefull so try to limit the payload. In terms of weather avoid the big jetstrteam across the North Atlantic ocean. fuel factor i would say is about the same as the normal a321 so around +4% to 5% should suffice.
