Of course I'm not contesting your affirmations, and truly
believe this situation doesn't occur with BA flight's,
should it ever happen, but imagine the following scenario:
flight destination is on a very remote area, therefore
destination divertion requires a lot of fuel, maybe
the divertion fuel makes the arrival weight higher than
MLW requiring the crew to dump fuel prior to landing,
if destination weather and other conditions uppon approach
mean a safe landing will be made.
Would this ever happen?
