This paper studies the average error probability of bit-interleaved coded modulation with uniform interleaving in fully-interleaved fading channels. At large signal-to-noise ratio, the dominant pairwise error events are mapped into symbols with Hamming weight larger than one, causing a flattening of the error probability. Closed-form expressions for the error probability with general modulations are provided. For interleavers of practical length, the flattening is noticeable only at very low values of the error probability.
