ATC will always use the longest runway available. Even a crosswind won't make it take a more appropriate runway. This is probably done for performance reasons (or because marketting pushed the release date forward and development didn't have everything done in time).
correct. Changing it for FS2002 would mean rewriting the entire ATC and AI code.
Won't happen, too costly and takes too long. Besides which, it is no bug and therefore does not belong in a patch but in an update or upgrade.
guys i do wish that u could request a runway but i just land on what runwaqy i think should be used.
and pretend that ATC told me to land there. u gotta admit they did do a good job, they cant get everything right.
