    I think you need to change the title to "Former AA Mechanic"

    You forgot to add the guides who walk the aircraft along side it. You don't move an aircraft without monitors.

    Spendy mistake. Not just the plane repairs, but the lost rev to cancel flights, reaccom a bunch of passengers. That's a very bad day at the office.

    Their insurance carrier or their self-insurance budget?

    They can likely find additional planes out of JFK - in fact, isn't a "ready reserve" 777 flight scheduled JFK-MIA for just this reason?

    Nope, but as long as it fits the passengers, it fits the bill.
