Just putting up this post to make the community more aware of some issues and inconsistencies during peak hours at airports. Now, I’m not posting this to complain, but to rather share my story and to help the game.
So I was flying a short flight, a 737 from Lax to San, which should’ve taken all of 45 minutes, and would have if the approach wasn’t messed up. I ended up being in the air for nearly 2 hours, and went emergency fuel, because of inconsistency in the approach. I was moved inband out of multiple the approach sequence about 4 times, so people that had entered the approach after me sometimes landed an hour before me. No obviously it was very busy yesterday, however, if you can’t handle the traffic, then don’t work that atc. I kid you not I was in the approach for an hour and a half, while others who entered slightly before or after me landed an hour before I did. If you want the full replay, you’ll see that I just kept getting moved to the end of the sequence, as the controller expanded the squiggles of the approach. I commend the ability to handle high traffic, however request more consistency in doing so. Definitely wasn’t planning on a 2 hour flight.
I think as a community we need to limit traffic better and or make controlling more consistent and fair for all.
