I was wondering what international airport has the most runways that are in use. Thanks in advance!

I suspect ORD with 6 (18/36 is no longer used)

How about DFW. Don't they have 7 in use at the same time in optimal conditions?

DEN right now has up to 5 in operation at a time, with a 6th being construction. If needed (this will never happen), I recall we can expand to 11 or 12, all 12000-16000ft long.
