According to this headline AirAsia is suspending service to Sultan Azlan Shah Airport:
My questions are:
How does an airline provide service for several months before deciding a runway is too short?
Shouldn't their due diligence have caught such a condition before they even attempt to offer service?
The only way that comes to mind is that the airport was marginal to begin with and the airline just took a chance that they can do their operations there.
Can anyone please enlighten me?
