Hey guys, this is just something I’ve noticed a bit recently. I have seen a few planes spawn in with an incorrect callsign, and I’ll use my current session as an example. If a controller is open in Dublin, and you spawn in as a BA A320 with the callsign “Alaska 123”, you may not notice it. Then, you send “Dublin Ground, Alaska 123 ready for pushback with information Alpha”.
Oh shoot! You have the wrong callsign. You quickly change it to match your flight, Speedbird 456. That’s all fine. But then, what do you do after? A couple people might think “Well, I’m a different callsign, so I need to request again”. You don’t need to do this. Our flight progress strips keep track of your flight progress, no matter how many times your callsign changes. We can always check and see the callsign you used to pushback, just in case we are confused at all.
This isn’t bad or ghostable or anything, and I understand why it happens, but in busy situations it can help clear up a bit of the frequency clutter and annoyance. Thanks!
