That is a frightening prospect if you have seen how much runway their A340s use at LHR!

Same as the Virgin A343s and got the photos to prove it.

Don't quite get your point?!

LGW has a 3,316m/10,879ft runway... This is capable of handling all passenger aircraft!

An A340-300 at MTOW only requires a 2900m runway, and that would not be required on a route to Sri Lanka. They may even choose to their A330-200's on the routes.

In order to preserve engines and fuel these days, pilots rarely use full thrust for take off and will choose a power appropriate to the runway they are operating out of.

Per what I've heard, the 332 can carry no cargo on the route.
