No plans for this in the pipeline at the moment and will probably not be decided until they decide what they are doing with runway 08/26.
There are talks of the runway being extended to 9500ft and other plans for a brand realligned new runway and the existing runway will operate as a spare like at LGW
. But never both being used at the same time.
Knowing the owners of LTN
it will be years away until any decision is made, but I suppose they dont have the money of BAA who own EDI
On Thursday last week I flew FR LTN
and we didn't even back track down the runway, we had a full load on a 738 and 3.5hr flight ahead of us and scared the shit out of me. Esspecially when the U2
737 aircraft infront us flying up to GLA
back tracked and he would have had a far lighter load. I guess we only had about 5000ft of runway to use, but the 738 cleared it easily and a very impressive take off performance!
