Does This Happen?

Mon Jan 29, 2001 12:35 am

Wouldn't it be a good idea for airlines to build their own runways at their hub airports? For instance, CO at EWR might buy out the nasty neighborhood surrounding the turboprop runway and then build itself its own runway to reduce ground delays at EWR.

I know that runway you reffered to isnt just a turboprop runway, Ive seen 737s, MD80s, DC9s, A320s land on it also. No it wouldnt happen, not economical to say the least.
