Anyone on the forums flying the 739ER that can look up for me the take-off runway required at MTOW (RWY LIMIT) at f.ex standard conditions (15°C).
At 85 tons I am sure it eats a lot of runway, would like to see numbers.

It's an excellent very long runway, limited payload, short range Aircraft.
Our management bought them thinking it could replace the B757 on transcontinental ops.
What a joke, it has not come even close, often having to make stops west and eastbound.
The remaining orders were converted back to the -800 :eek:

Thanks guys, just what I suspected. This is a fine 2-3 hr airplane when you have 12.000ft runways (at s.l.) to play with.
