Does this mean DFW is preparing for A-380 service?

No, just that cargo planes from the likes of Cathay Pacific 744Fs could then take-off with a full cargo load even on the hottest days in Texas.

It's not like they can't do it now. We already have three runways that are 13,000 ft. Adding 17C-35C just makes it an even number  Wink

Yes, but 17C-35C will be extended to 13,401 ft. That's probably around 5-7 degrees Fahrenheit more during which the fully-loaded 744F can take off  Silly .

If that extra bit of pavement is so critical for takeoff, why are they not doing it on the inboard runways, instead of one that is rarely used for departures??

Considering DFW's altitude (relatively low) do those 744F's need the 13,000 as it is?? Even DEN isn't too much longer.

Just another example of DFW wasting money. At least we know Fagan and Cox do that very well.

Remember the first part to hot and high airports: heat !

The afternoon high can easily top 100 degrees F in June-August, and for the greatest flexibility in departure time and payload, the longer the runway the better.

All 4 runways will be 13,400 feet. The other three are already there.

Well, given that DEN's longest runway is 16,000 feet, I would consider that a little longer than DFW.
