Friday night DXB TS1. Everytime I would contact ATC for landing clearance, they would allow it, but then as I was on final there was always an airplane lined up on the runway, so I called a go around. This happened 3 or 4 times and eventually my 739 was running dangerously low on fuel, and of course there was another plane on the runway, so I flew over him and landed. Is there a way to tell ATC that you’re running low on fuel or do you just land?
this happens on TS1 as some TS1 ATC (if not most) have no idea what they are doing.
Just try to land on a runway with no traffic or another airport if the traffic is chaotic. (on TS1)
There is a button to tell them emergency fuel message if you want to tell them
No you don’t just land,and yes there is a fuel emergency button after you have flown for over an hour and are under 30 minutes remaining.
Once you were low on fuel, I would suggest diverting to a airport with less traffic to avoid this problem.
Those pesky noobs always lining up on the runway before we land. You should divert to a nearby airport.
Please see @Brandon_Sandstrom comment above yours as it is correct.
I’m sorry, I had read that somewhere on the forum. My apologies!
