Since a long time there is/was speculation that KLM would start this service, what's the status at the moment? Isn't there a runway problem at Aberdeen for longhaul?

I've never heard anything about KLM on that route, but CityStar was going to start it with a 757. I guess that's out of the question now too since they went bankrupt.

The runway is 6000 feet... Which is a little bit on the short side.

I think they are extending it at the moment....well at least they definately have plans to.

I reckon Continental should start the route with the 757.

Also for a Privatair BBJ like they use on AMS-IAH?

I don't know the TODR for a BBJ, but I would speculate it to be around 6000 feet... Someone that flies 73s please enlighten us.

I went to Boeing to look at performance, and at MTOW the 737 requires about 7000 to 8000 feet. Just by glancing at it, I didn't study it closely.


edit to include last part.
