The obvious question is, if they can land straight in today, why couldn't they do so the day before yesterday? The two flights should have had similar amounts of fuel on board. Or was today's flight much lighter on cargo and/or passengers?

Maybe I'm wrong, but if that was the case and the plane did indeed land overweight wouldn't inspections have to be carried out before the aircraft flew again?
