Uh?

At the altitude these planes are flying at, the outside temperature is around -60°. The fact that it's in a tropical (vs. polar) region of the planet, really, makes a rather piddly amount of difference.

I mean, yes, it's rather surprising that the planes' insulation (or whatever) is not sufficiently designed as to prevent fuel freezing. But that's a different issue altogether from whatever effect that the part of the world would have on the fuel temperature.

Oh, I thought flying the polar route between continents would have had a larger effect. My bad.
