I'm sorry that I can not help you on your questions, But I would like it if someone could help me out on the Fokker 100 (Instead of starting a new topic), Could a Fokker 100 take-off fully loaded from London City Airport, and land with a full set of Passengers?
Or say could It fly Bournemouth-London city with a fully loaded plane, and the fuel it needs for the flight?

Is a F100 certified for LCY? I think that due to its spatial proximity to "the City", LCY has a steeper than usual approach path that requires special aircraft certification. I know that the ERJ and the Q8-400 have it as well as the F27, but I've neve heard of an F100 landing there.

Max range of the F100 is 1,323 nm or 2,505 km. The F100 has a minimum runway length of 1,800 m or aproximately 5,400 ft. It could theoretically operate into LCY, but not with a full load, and it definitely could not take off from LCY with a full load. Would be nice if it could, though, maybe Rekkof can work on it

The longest route for the Fokkers out of ORD was to SAT at 1,041 statute miles. I don't know if those flights were weight restricted.
I don't think AA ever flew Fokkers on ORD-LGA, although they did fly ORD-EWR. A friend of mine is an AA pilot, and has flown ORD-LGA on 727s and 757s. Other than DC-10s and 767s early in his career, the only other aircraft he has seen on the route is the MD-80.

The F-100 would be the ideal a/c for a LCC operation out of LCY, IF the runway was slightly longer, however, I would never subject passengers to the vile cabin that comes as standard on those birds. Very poor quality furnishings I thought when I flew AA from ORD-RDU, or may have been CLT, I dont remember. Could the overheads,ceilings and wall panels be replaced like the NW DC-9's?

the F-100 isn't certified for LCY, but the F-70 is... thats why there are so many rumours of VLM being the first to fly the new build F-70's so they can fly more passengers from theire LCY hub... although i dont think the F-70(NG) will ever see the sky....

It might be an open door but has anybody checked the site of Rekkof Aircraft NV? (www.rekkof.nl) On this site performance data is provided for the F70NG and F100NG. What I can recall from my time at Fokker is that the data provided is the same as the F70's and F100 currently flying around.
