It's quite interesting, watched it the other day. But we probably should post this in a pilots forum to get an idea, if no significant amounts of fuel are spent in cruise then a pilot should be able to know this by his gauges/fuel reading.

Additionally any engineer should be able to verify if the wing structure can withstand the weight of the fuel.

On the other hand some flight tickets are way too cheap for the proposed fuel consumption. I used to think they were subsided for other reasons.

It doesn't have to. The wings are either flying (supported by the air) or supported by the wheels. In fact it's the wings that are supporting the rest of the aircraft.

Flights that are low cost are simply because of gov subsidies. Cities want tourists, that's why there are low costs flights.
