According to www.landings.com Antigua's (ANU) main runway length is 9,003 ft.
I remember being on the island about 1981 and British Airways had 747 service to London then.
Boeing Flown: 701,702,703;717;720;721,722;731,732,733,734,735,737,738,739;741,742,743,744,747SP;752,753;762,763;772,773.

Hi Gatwickgunner

Antigua rwy 07/25 is 8979ft so it is one of the shorter ones we regularly operate from.
