I ve been having these limitations in this game on some routess and I dont know why.
This DC8-63 has 210 seats, 4950nm range and requires a runway of at least 3300.
I am putting this plane on IST-IAD (4540nm and IAD has a 3506m runway) and all I m getting is a max of 114pax.
anyone has an explanation? 
The only reason I see is that IST has a 3000nm runway.  But if I do an IST-LHR, I can take off and land with a full load   ??? so Its not due to my airport.

It is due to your airport. With a 3000 nm runway, your plane can only carry so much weight. To fly to IAH, it needs so much fuel that there is only enough spare weight for 114 pax. To fly to LHR, it needs much less fuel, so there's more weight for pax, so you can fly with a full load.
