Have you ever been to a Full airport in IF

To the people who have been to an airport with no more gates free, How was it like, was it hectic, fun?

And also to the atc
Did many planes had to do a holding pattern or did others had to divert?

In General how was it

Hectic but fun makes it more realistic

There are three letters to describe it. Fun for seriousness it takes a while to get used to it especially if it is on the casual server

This rarely happens - and when it does its usually at smaller airports such as VNKT [Kathmandu] which have very few gates.

At these smaller airports, we try and make sure it doesnโ€™t happen because it makes our job as IFATC a lot harder.

Once at EDDM ,which is a relatively big airport, all gates were full and I had to wait 20 mins to finally find a free one and we had more than an 1 hour wait before being able to takeoff

Last time I remember seeing it was at LCY during a flash flight, but I luckily managed to depart before it filled up ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I was coming into LHR from Paris and I had to circle the airport 10 times before I landed. (It took 30mins)
