There’s a question I still don’t have a full answer, why is everyone (not everyone but you get the point) flying to/from EGLL ?
I know it’s a major airport in Europe with many destinations, but so is LFPG (Paris Charles de Gaulle), EDDF (Frankfurt) and EHAM (Amsterdam Schiphol).
Only speaking about EGLL and LFPG, there’s not much difference if you look at the number of passengers per year. In 2017, EGLL turned at 78’000’000 passengers/year approximately when LFPG was at 69’000’000.
I was looking at LiveFlight Tracker and you can clearly see the difference between EGLL and LFPG:
It’s not something that really bothers me actually, I’m just curious. It’s great to see full activity in an airport on Live, but this amount of traffic in London can sometimes be frustrating. I’ve already been waiting like 20 min to take off from EGLL because of the traffic, or ATC controller rage-quit because of players behaviour make the airport look like a mess.
In my opinion it would be nice if people don’t automatically open Ground/Tower at EGLL but try to control other major airports in Europe.
