Author Topic: Why do New Jet Aircraft, not meet runway requirements Asia Australia, Europe???  (Read 858 times)

Hi.

I ordered DC8 51-53's finding that they would not be allowed to be scheduled between even major cities!
Pairing cities with 12,000ft and a DC8 needing under 9000, with a low de luxe seating arrangement, they are refused to be scheduled.
Same with B707 120 / 320c Aircraft.

This despite some reaching a 4,700 miles + capability.
Eg MEB-HND. or via CMB to LHR?

Seems to be a systemic problem, and two types of modern Aircraft cannot be used as a result!

Any analysis pls?
Thanks

Of course, but it's still 1967 in this game world and the op is specifically asking about MEB, not MEL which doesn't open until 1970.

Does anybody understand why airport NSFA / APW (Samoa) does not allow very large (DC8) aircraft? Runway is 2987m x 45 and handling fee for DC8-62 is published.

I think size class of the airport being (2) Small means you can't operate the size class of aircraft the DC8 comes under. I think that would be your problem.

Thanks for the comment!! Yes, the problem clearly is that the airport is classified as small, even if the runway is long enough for very largec(DC8) type aircraft. And why publish handling fees for DC8-62 if it is not allowed?

I think, it's published because judging by my routes to South America. The airport size doesn't matter for fuel stops, but of course you would still get charged a landing fee for that.

If your base is too small for the type that will also affect what aircraft can be served.
