Today inbound SAEZ.
Lanar 683 inbound from the south to ILS 35. Rather than sequencing me straight in to 35, vectored left crosswind around the airport. That’s fine. It was busy. But when I was 30nm north of SAEZ I thought Approach May have forgotten about me so I “check in”. Response was not to send duplicate messages. Really? I think a better response would have been “roger”. This lets the pilot know Approach is watching and sequencing, even if it seems wayward.
After landing, SAEZ, exiting the runway just after the hold line at 7 knots gs, Ground transmits “active airport please contact Ground”. Please give pilots a chance to switch frequencies before sending this message.
Just friendly feedback. ATC crew is awesome!
