I read that the A3XXX will need minimal runway length of 11,000+ feet. what airports have that type of runway length? And how long is the longest runway in the world? how many airports will be able to have the A3XXX go to their aiports?

The longest marked runway I know of in the world is about 37000ft long. Most major international airports have runways longer than 11000ft. Quite a few have runways that are 13000ft or longer (such as ORD, JFK, and NRT).

HI

Major international airports usually have longer runways. Take for example Singapore Changi Airport, it has quite a long runway. Besides that it has already started work on it's new terminal. It will certainly have longer runways and bigger airbridges to accomodate these aircrafts as Singapore Airlines have already ordered quite a number of A3XXs.

I'm not joking, but I did make a typo, should be 47000ft   Edwards AFB. 15000ft paved, then as I recall another 6 or so miles (32000ft) of marked lakebed with the consistency of concrete.

What the hell are they going to land on 47000 Ft, damn, even a space shuttle doesnt need that much lenght to land.
