747-300 at Dublin

I would like to order a new 747, but Dublin's Runway is 500 ft short. How much will this impact pax loads?

I've had a look and it does say that Dublin's longest runway is 2637m long and a 747-300 requires 2890m.  When you try and plan a route out of Dublin with a 747 it doesn't say there are any restrictions  :-\

Apparently it won't impact loads at all then if this is the case.  Hmmm...

The payload restriction depends also on the length of the route ... You can very well fly a route with B743 from DUB that's let's say 500 nm long as the plane is no where near its max takeoff weight and thus does not requiree the full runway.

But you can test this by going to route open menu and 'opening' a route to the desired destination (but not actually confirming/saving the route..)

Ah I see - I just tested a short-haul route.  That makes sense with more fuel, baggage, cargo etc.  Thanks Sami :)
