I can't remember an instance of where we ran up on max zero fuel weight, because 9 times out of ten we run into problems with the max landing weight. This is simple. Either the captain is comfortable in being more liberal with the fuel number or he/she's not.

As a general rule, if the captain of the flight is a commuter himself, he will be more willing to help out.
