Would U2 / FR accept these limitations ?

It doesn't look like it is a massive market. They do not fly to either Samos or Mytilene which have more PAX.

I had been watching JSI operations last summer and this is what I saw: The B752 and the A319 have no problems, the A320/A321 can reach AMS nonstop but won`t make it over the Channel without refuelling in SKG. The 738`s field performance is even worse.

Are there any plans to extend the runway?
