The 777x in all likelihood will not get off the new runway when wet at MTOW. So really if DUB are serious about getting Tokyo, Singapore or South America on the departure boards in future, it’ll be A359 or nothing.

The newer A333 shouldn't have many problems heading to SFO with cargo?

In addition to A350, the B787s and A330 NEOs should be capable of fly most route at full or almost full MTOW.

In general max MTOW isn't possible from the vast majority of airports (ultra long route) across the globe. DUB will not fail to attache n airline who wants to serve with a runway of 3.110 or 3.600.
