Rolling that long (had they really used most of the runway) wouldn't be a problem for the landing gear ?

I actually think I was working local for that flight, cause I even said to myself "he really needed full legnth?". If this is the same flight I'm thinking of this happened just a few days ago. The flight actually rotated just after the 28/33L intersection. The winds were out of the southeast and I'm sure they had more fuel on board because of the weather down in Texas, so that's what I'm guessing
|Quoting BigSaabowski (Reply 10):|
The CO crew probably does not fly to BWI all that often and did not know, while at the gate, that takeoffs on 28 are usually done from C. Thus they did not request the takeoff data for 28/C and it would've taken too much time/hassle to request the data and reset the speed bugs and thrust after they've started taxiing. The 735 is more than capable for taking off from C, however, all Part 121/135 flights require a runway analysis be performed before every takeoff.

Isn't the 121 rule for takeoff limit the ground roll +30%?
|Quoting Goldenshield (Reply 14):|
Mathimatically, it's done the other way around. Since a runway is a finite piece of land, the plane must takeoff using only 70% of the USEABLE runway surface at a given tempurature where a maximum takeoff weight is given

runway 28 is a positive runway gradient, but dunno how much
|Quoting dispatchguy (Reply 15):|
Where is that regulation? I thought it was that balanced/unbalanced field concept, at least for a Boeing bird (I know that at my carrier, our MD80 fleet is restricted to balanced field - since that aircraft wasnt certified for an unbalanced field, but our 57s and 67s all use the unbalanced field concept to maximize weight off a given runway). When we had 737s, they were done unbalanced field as well - to the max extent possible.

They could roll all the way to Houston provided they dont exceed the maximum tire speed.
