John:
 It looks like you're going to get more information on airliner rates of
climb than you ever imagined or for that matter, cared about. Let me add a
couple more. Temperature, from the ground to cruising altitude  has a
significant effect on climb performance. One other little thing. After
climbing at an indicated airspeed to around 28-30 thousand feet, again
depending on temperature, you change from IAS to mach number, usually
.80-.82 till you reach cruising altitude.
