UA167 from Lisbon to IAD just attempted to divert to DCA. After going around once it landed at DCA just before a line of severe storms ripped through. Weather is the obvious reason, but has there been an international diversion like this before? Can CBP process these folks or do they have to get to...

Re: Why does BA (and others) decide to use 20+ year old planes on specific popular routes?

I’d say why cannot ?
According to you a 20 + years old plane cannot be used and should be sent to be scrapped or junk graveyard.
I don´t think so as long as the aircraft is good enough and properly maintained to fly

It should be, strictly one piece.
