Technically runways are never actually “closed” even if they’re in red you can still land on that side if the ATC allows it. It just means that there is worse wind conditions on that side.

You can land on red runways. You follow the controllers orders.

Please PM the controller directly next time.

Support is for technical issues. This is a judgement based issue. The app here is working fine:)

We have made it abundantly clear, that when you are in communication with ATC, you are to FOLLOW ATC instructions. Your flight plan then becomes void. Controllers will try to keep you on your FPL if they are able. If not, then you follow ATC’s instructions without fail.

There is an event in progress and traffic going into WSSS were landing of 02L/C. I do not see where the Center controller was sending you to either 20C/20R. He instructed you to turn to 090 for a reason.

If you do not want to follow ATC instructions, you are more than welcome to fly on the Free Flight Server. Your complaint holds no validity. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me. Thanks.
