Tokyo Narita (ATC-SIM)

So, planes in real life also take off from runway 16L and 34R at Narita Airport. I noticed that here in the game they only take off on 16R and 34L. Why?

Do heavies use 16L / 34R for departures, though? At the moment, the sim isn't sophisticated enough to do conditional runway assignments based on aircraft type, although I'm burning to get that added in. Another place with a similar problem is Philadelphia.

As an aside, I've landed on 16L / 34R in a 777-300, and it was rather harrowing, haha. We seemed to drift for half the runway, too, which may have contributed.

Heavies do land on 16l/34r, but only if their gate is close to that runway.
