The crew reported they had 60 point 3 fuel remaining, tower queried in pounds, crew replied affirmative, tower astonished "You have only 60 pounds of fuel left?", then the crew clarified "sixtythousandthree hundred pounds, about 5 hours of fuel, sixty point three".

The crew subsequently advised they would need to stop on the runway and evacuate. The aircraft landed safely on runway 02, stopped on the runway, emergency services reported seeing no smoke, fire or heat from the outside and requested the aircraft to vacate the runway, the crew advised they would vacate the runway.
