I suspect we may struggle with Embraer 175, the runway hasn't been lengthened, so it is officially still only 1,463 metres long. The take off run at maximum takeoff weight is 1,644 metres for the E-170 and 2,244 metres for the E-175. Either they need to fly the plane empty or it will just not work! The only option was and still is to lengthen the runway, but when you read the opposition on this site to even building a couple of houses anywhere, it is just not going to happen. Even the Boeing 737 next generation (mentioned above) are close to the mark, normally a 1,600 metre runway for comfort. Turboprob it will have to be for the foreseeable future.
