LAX running a little less efficient at night due to the incident at Reagan, but they have applied for a waiver.  American 14 requested 7L instead of 6L, but complex changes are not allowed now.

Happens all the time now at KROC. They usually use runway 22 due to prevailing winds but on nights when the winds are low and the traffic light, arriving A/C would often request 04 to shave a few minutes off their flight time.  (A lot of ROC traffic comes up from the south so 04 is direct and 22 requires a big circle over Lake Ontario.)  Even at midnight with no departures until 6AM and only one arrival, they can't offer 04 if 22 is officially active.

I suspect this is going to be relaxed eventually.  The new procedures are going to cost airlines a lot of time and fuel, cumulatively, especially at small airports.  The FAA seems to be pretty sensitive to the airlines' needs.
