It wouldn't surprise me at all if Trump was late on purpose. Isn't that supposed to be a "negotiating strategy", asserting dominance over the other person by making them wait? For all I know it may...

I was thinking it must have been a relatively new 777, which would make it more worthwhile to repair, but the report stated it was built in 1998. But the report did say it only had 12,835 total...
