Preferred Runways won't apply to the following route building scenarios:
the system is told to use a specific runway
the system is told not to use a runway
the system is told to use the runway with maximum headwind.
For an overview of the WebFOMS features, refer to the Aircraft Characteristics screen. The features described there can be applied to all screens.
For instructions on how to make modifications on the WebFOMS screens, refer to the Modify / View Aircraft Characteristics article. It uses the Aircraft Characteristics as an example but can be applied to all WebFOMS screens.
