How much does it cost an airliner if an 777 flying on an international flight, had to divert the flight and make an emergency landing due to a passenger having a medical emergency?
|Quoting Viscount724 (Reply 6):|
As far as I know, virtually all aircraft can and often do land overweight perfectly legally when there's a valid reason to do so.
|Quoting bristolflyer (Reply 7):|
Surely Birmingham was easier for all the passengers, but I guess Ryanair doesn't serve BHX so would they have got charged up the wazoo for landing there?
|Quoting Fabo (Reply 8):|
IIRC all aircraft as certified are supposed to be able to land without significant damage and safely up to their maximum certified take-off mass.
|Quoting tdscanuck (Reply 9):|
If it was capable of taxing and taking off, it's capable of landing at the same weight (up to and including MTOW). It's all about controlling sink rate (controlling structural load).
