ATC question

Im at OEJN, and i request pushback, and i request runway, and it says the 16’s are red.

Is this a mistake?

Nope. Red simply means there’s a tailwind component of 5kts or greater. Unless the tailwinds exceed 10kts, a runway change won’t occur since it’s not necessary to do so. Planes can handle it.

At OEJN right now, it’s really a direct crosswind with a slight tailwind bias for the 16s. Not a big deal.

Check ATIS frequency to see what runways are in use.
