Today at EWR, the controller was trying to make 29 departures happen, when in reality aircraft never takeoff of runway 29 because it is a 7700 foot runway. Also aircraft never land on 22L. WInds were also perfect runway 22R/L and 29 was a crosswind. Would be good if controllers did there reasearch.
We appreciate the desire for realism but you have to understand that the volume that IFATC experiences is not realistic. When possible controllers will use real world procedures. However, when the airspace/ground is busy the goal is to provide a service to pilots while minimizing delays which may or may not conflict with realism.
We hope you understand.
