Even though a plane fits the runway size and has no other flights, I cannot find a plane that will land at Love Field except an ERJ 140LR. There are over 1K daily customers. I just leased a Boeing 737 900ER. It should fit on the runway but will not show up. No other planes unencumbered and with a short enough runway requirement will land either.

DAL does have a perimeter rule where only flights from certain states can land there. I don't really know the full situation but that seems to be the most likely reason.

It's the exact reason. Google "Wright Amendment" for all the background. The law was designed to prevent competition with DFW airport by restricting what DAL could do. Pretty much any aircraft from immediately neighboring states could fly in & out but anything further away was restricted to aircraft with a maximum of 50-seats. That's why your ERJ will work fine but a B737 wont. The law was repealed in 2014 but I'm not sure if the cancellation of the policy has been written into the game.

It's this weird law that AE decided to model in relatively detailed fashion (at least compared to a lot of other stuff in the game). It's super annoying. I've learned not to even try bothering with Dallas Love Field.
