OK, Lets say an airliner makes an emergency landing at JFK
(think of the AA
incident last week) with a nose gear issue. I have a few questions:
Who pays to fix runway damages and the towing of the aircraft?
Does the airline have to pay a landing fee?
Do they pay for the foam from the firetrucks?
How about the operational time of the emergency services (6 trucks for 6 hours, etc)
I wondering if this is included in the landing fees paid to airports, or if it is charged as a billable service back to the airline?
