I’m trying to find out how far a 787-8 would be able to flight non-stop from hot/high airports like BOG or UIO to destinations in Europe ; how restricted could they operate or if they could make it without restriction (wishful thinking) .
Of special interest are the UIO legs to Europe like UIO-MAD/ UIO-CDG ; to me this is a fascinating airport as its at 2400 m asl, has a new runway (4100m) and it’s probably the farthest from Europe from the other busy hot and high airports in Lat America (MEX or BOG) , the exception being LPB .
Also how far could a 787 be able to operate from LPB (La Paz)??
|Quoting sunrisevalley (Reply 4):|
The engine power will have a big bearing on all this The standard 788 engine which I believe is 64K pounds of thrust allows a 213t TOW out of UIO. A 74K engine would push off MTOW.
Assuming UIO-AMS is about 11-hrs the payload is about 29t and 38t respectively. The latter figure is probably very close to max volume limited payload.

I don't know how much more powerful the engines could get, I believe on the GENx types the max for the 787 series will be 78K pounds thrust
