I would think they'd still keep some for remote stands. I didn't even realize they still did hardstand arrivals. I thought Saudia and Qatar were using the Z gates? No, the Z gates can't accommodate widebodies. Saudia and Qatar use A/B. And yes, they still do hardstand arrivals, mostly for IRROPS. S...Jump to post
Random question (again) for you all.

Super cool to hear, b...Jump to post

If they are government aircraft why wouldnt they fly out of a military base? These two aircraft might very well operate to a military base. In fact, it’s quite likely.

Both aircraft (N423AX and N441AX) use callsign Omni. They seem to fly from Dulles to Bucharest and back. I have no idea why they fly this route but have always been curious.

Are they still planning to build that 5th runway? Seems like a waste if 12 is only seldom used. According to IAD’s website a new runway is being planned. I think the airport authority will only build the runway if there is demand for it. http://www.mwaa.com/business/d2-projects-future-fifth-runway ...Jump to post
Correction! I meant I have never seen an arrival on 12 My guess is that 12 isn't normally used for arrivals due to a potential conflict with a 12 go-around and any go-around or departure off of any of the 19s. ORD used to run dual and triple converging approaches (non-parallel runways) and although...Jump to post
Runway 30 is the primary departure runway. Runway 1R/19L is used for departures only during United’s departure banks(8:30AM, 12:30PM, 5:30PM and 10:00PM) Arrivals will take place on runway 1R/19L and 1C/19C most of the time.
