I agree. That's why I hypothetically asked:Closed and not in use are two different things. If the runways is closed for maintenance etc. it is not part of the air tranport system.
You'd divert and it wouldn't be an emergency, right?What would you do if the runway you needed was simply closed and fuel was not an issue?
Another hypothetical: What if AA was on final ILS 22 and instead of winds going above their crosswind, they had to go missed approach because of fog.
Should they declare an emergency and demand to be #1 for the ILS 31R?
If fuel was an issue, sure. Go ahead. If it wasn't and issue, you might divert or you might ask for vectors to 31R.
