Restrictions in London City Airport

You mention the CRJ family - well I spent hours and hours trying to get a decent landing at EGLC with the CRJ700. It’s impossible. With the steep approach you either go too fast or apply spoilers and drop like a stone. OK I landed each time but it was not graceful and in real life it would be RIP landing gear! I made a topic about it once and some clever person told me that the CRJ family are not allowed to land at EGLC as they not configured for steep approaches. Of course you could fake it with a 3 degree pitch but in real life that would put you in Lord Sugar’s office in Canary Wharf if you were landing in runway 09. Agreed though, there should be restrictions.
