>>>No actually they diverted to JFK
due to the lenght of runways in EWR
. No where near the size of JFK
. So not diverted due to maintenance but rather length of runway.
Yeah, that's what the article -said- but EWR
's runway lengths are plenty long enough for a nosegear-up landing. No doubt in my mind they went to JFK
due to AA
's larger presence at JFK
(as far as customer service) and MX
Now, to be nasty, they could have landed at EWR
, closed a runway, and put CO
hub operation into a big delay situation. Betcha CO
is -real- glad they went to JFK
