Guys all this discussion about the -800 having "high approach speeds" and be prone to "getting off the runway" is just plain ridiculous. There are landing performance calculations that can be based on a 130 kt or 160 kt or 190 kt or whatever Vref it just does not matter as long as You put in the correct landing data and the landing technique is appropriate. The theory that if on a classic You f#ck up the landing You can still probably make it without veering off the runway is better left out for a pub talk please. Nonsense. Let's focus on the root causes and contributing factors and let's try to learn something beneficial for ourselves.
