Woah. 102 arrivals into UUEE 😳

I wish I could fly from Dublin but no. Denmark said no

Flew in the South Korean team from RKSI. Brought extra fuel expecting to hold for some time due to the sheer number of arrivals! Everything went smoothly on approach to UUEE (didn’t need to enter a hold, lucky me), controller on ground was very communicative (“standby” call outs) when I had to hold short of 06R after a right turn off 06L. Was probably a good 5-7 minutes before I made it across to the gate D25. Loved the FNF! Great job everyone!

I got to say, the ATC Controller isn’t being very good.

And now I have been ghosted for like no reason. I’ve asked to take off, kept on saying no and then reported me because “I was blocking a taxiway” but I wasn’t instructed to take off?

Yeah well for those living in USA, they’d say Soccer since that’s correct for them…

It’s like saying Cookie or Biscuit?
Aborigine or Eggplant?
Flat or Apartment?

But no matter what you call it, cuz tonight we’ll all be united under the same sky in Moscow, filled with us amazing pilots 🌟✈🌟

We have a massive flight coming out of OEJN inbound Moscow. No idea what it is, but Mark, Jason, Seb and Val (Edit: he left a while ago) are there. 🤔

This is not the thread to talk about ghosts or atc controllers. If you have an issue with a controller, PM them, regardless of the situation. Thanks for understanding.

OIMM is open, congrats Iran on that late winner.

I don’t know how several people knew about this without Mark posting something on here. I came because I saw a big white dot in Saudi Arabia

Well i have to give to Iran, both played good and im happy Iran won but we’ll see how long they can stand up against Spain and Portugal… 😏

I would’ve loved to simulate Lopetegui’s flight today, depart from LEMD, go around at UUEE 2 seconds before touchdown and return straight to LEMD right away😂
