Why am I the only one who understand your song references? I’m going to this event at night, so the moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation.

Have you planned this route from my flight or it is by chance? Before you announce FNF, I set a flight by Ethiopian 787 from SBGL (Rio de Janeiro) to HAAB (Addis Ababa). My callsign is IranAir 655. I will arrive about 10:30 Zulu.
Good Luck everybody

Hello everyone,

For controllers especially, could you please also open some other airports in the same region of HAAB or close countries just to avoid a congestion on HAAB. It’s fun to have a lot of pilots but at the same time delays could become extremely high on busiest airports.

Thanks all.

See you tonight
