How often is runway 4R/22L used for takeoffs at EWR? Also do longhaul heavies ever takeoff from this runway (i.e. EWR-HNL(764) EWR-HKG(777) EWR-ICN(744), etc.)? If any do from time to time which ones. Also, is the crosswind runway (29/11 I think) ever used for takeoffs? Thanks to anybody with any info.

As far as i know(data up to yesterday, i've been there!) 4R would not be used for takeoff, mostly landing. however 4L would be used for all takeoff while landing may be conducted on both runways. For time, usually when the wind is from North, runway 4L/R will be used.

11/29? I don't know, but I've saw few planes landing on 29, the biggest one is 737.

Hope this helps

Until a few years ago (or less?) 4R was longer than 4L but now it isn't-- so no need for the heavies to use it.

Not certain but I think I've seen jets departing 29, rarely-- maybe when one of the 4s was closed. Never seen a jet depart 11.

So 4R/22L is used for smaller aircraft from time to time?

The outer, parallel to the Turnpike is usually used for landings, while the inner for takeoffs. 11/29 has small props or jets taking off on it sometimes. I've seen alot of jets landing on 29 when there are heavy crosswinds. I've seen 777's, 747's A340's, MD-11's, DC-10's, 767's, 757's, 737's, 727's, MD-80's, CRJ's, ATR's and other turboprops.

I've seen a DC-10 actually take off from 11 once. The weather was clear that day and it don't remember it being all that windy so why it took off from there I don't know. Also, one day after some particularly heavt thunderstorms, I saw 3 777's land onto 11. I couldn't believe it. Big jets always land onto 29 all the time when it really windy out. Never seen anything bigger than a ATR land from that way before that. Also, once I was going to LAs on a 757 and we took off from 29 and just headed straight west from there. I thought that was unusual. It was a pretty gloomy winter morning so there were no thunderstorms or anything. I have no idea why we took off from that way.

Normally they use 4L for takeoffs and 4R for landings, but sometimes they use 4R for takeoffs as well. Not too long ago I've seen DC-10s and MD-80s use it (on that particular day). The DC-10 must've been a long haul because it ate up almost all the runway. These are isolated cases though, normally it's used for landings.
