So I really enjoy Friday Night Flight, and it was in Western Africa today. However, it sounds great on paper, but there wasn’t enough parking and it took around 30 minutes from pushback to rotation. Not blaming our accusing the mods or ATC of anything, (they did great for such a busy frequency) but in practice, it lead to the longest taxi time I have ever seen on FNF. I think overall, the concept was great, and it was the first time ever than an FNF was in Western Africa. That scores well. However, the hub airport had near 20 gates, which isn’t enough with 80/90 arrival/departure ratio per hour. Although Africa doesn’t have the best airports or certainly the biggest, Lagos is the fifth largest, but a bigger Casablanca could have a secondary hub for the FNF like Lagos due to size.
Overall Score: 7.4/10
I will continue this thread every week for debating purposes, ATC did very good!
