For a runway that was only recently rebuilt and being in a Western country, the runway at AKL
is quite rough.
It is safe of course (no dogs running across it or potholes etc), but it is quite rough (I'm thinking perhaps it is slightly undulating and not completely level, and feels like you are banging down the centerline the whole time even if you are slightly off center). AKL
does get its fair share of rain so perhaps that has something to do with it, but if the likes of SIN
with its monsoons can have a smooth runway then I don't know why AKL
56 types. 38 countries. 24 airlines.
