And I read that LAX officials complained so loudly that it will also be landing at LAX today. Apparently did so about 4 or so hours ago. LAX officials were PO'd that they had spent millions in taxiway improvements and gate infrastructure and then threatened with cancellation. They noted the dual gate ramp alone cost $9M.
Very similar arguments were put forward when the 747 started operating and they land in most international airports
Did anyone see the near disastrous landing at LAX? It gave me a cold shiver when the pilot banged that rudder hard over trying to recover!!! Do the main gear trucks castor like a B-52???
