Were W9’s flights (by 732s and 73Gs) restricted from TTN’s 6,006-foot runway? If they were, in what way? Thanks.

What was their longest flight-- to GSO?

Does CO still fly a 73G off of SNA's 5700-ft runway to EWR?

Don’t be facetious: it doesn’t suit you. I asked a simple question and I would appreciate a serious answer. It is widely believed, which doesn’t mean it’s true, that Ryanair flights to Belfast City airport, whose runway is 6,001 feet, will be restricted to 140 passengers, despite short flights of 25 minutes-1 hour. The capacity of its 73Hs is 189. Hence, I'm curious to know whether W9 flights were operationally restricted to/from TTN.

The serious answer is: no one knows. Any idea what their longest flight out of TTN was? If it was GSO, that's a shorter flight than DET-BNA, which WN flew nonstop (5100-ft runway). (Don't recall offhand whether they used 732s there.)

Try another thread, asking if anyone knows about restrictions on CO's SNA-EWR 73Gs. (Turns out that is still current.)

Quoting Pe@rson (Thread starter):
Were W9�s flights (by 732s and 73Gs) restricted from TTN�s 6,006-foot runway? If they were, in what way? Thanks.

Even through a 73G's max takeoff weight might have been less than max structural, a short flight TTN-GSO (or any other destination less than 3 hours away) would have had them limited by structural max landing weight (MLW) at GSO.

On the 732, they too may have been landing weight limited out of TTN-GSO, but without knowing what kind of engines they were running (-9, -15, -17) and what kind of specific obstacles (if any) are around TTN, it's impossible for me to say if they may have been further restricted by takeoff weights at TTN. One can't just look at runway lengths and field elevations.

W9=Eastwind Airlines

For what its worth, Wikipedia says this about Eastwind and the short runway at TTN
"Due to the short runway at Trenton-Mercer Airport, the airline served Philadelphia for a short time,
but consolidated their flights back to Trenton, New Jersey in early 1999 when Delta Air Lines terminated
their contract to handle ground services."
