RE: Continental To Fly Atlanta-Dubrovnik, Croatia!?

9A-CRO,

The runways at Cilipi is over 3 km long. I think its length is 3.3 km to be exact.

Nevertheless I think that Split may not be technically acceptable, nor operationally feasible for a Boeing 777. Don't ger me wrong; it would be nice to see a 777 there.
