    ever?

    This is an extraction from somewhere, but i have no widlest idea of what this really means.

    - Virtually ever carrier uses that runaway.

    Does it mean "No carrier ever uses that runaway" or what?

    I don't think this is correct sentence. please make it clear to me.

    This looks like another typo, it should be "every". Then the sentence would make sense.

    I agree with bhaisahab although I also disagree.
    To me it is every, but the sense should be:
    Almost every carrier uses that runaway.
    It's not:
    No carrier uses that runaway.
    (At least it would surprise me...)

    Cheers!

    It sounds like carriers are airlines using runways.

    Yes, of course it means "almost every carrier..." I didn't suggest that it meant the opposite.
