@LSZH34 In airports like JFK which I have flown into multiple times you will not make a lot of friends taking your time to line up. You have to be ready to go. Yes, with safety in mind, a pilot can tell the atc to standby, but even your captain will get pissed at you for even thinking that you can just take your time and line up At a busy airport. as pilots, when you are holding short your mind is already running through the pre take off checklist because there is a plane on a 8mile final, frequency for departure is already on comm 2 ready to get switched. I have them all my checklists(at least the important ones)memorized and most other pilots do just to ease their workload, but use the checklist as reference. Atc will remember you and when you ask them for certain vectors to cut time they will deny you those due to the fact that you won’t be able to handle the workload. Again, that’s just real life. For the game, I agree with you, but it will vary on airports on longer runways. Goal should be to land on the touchdown markers which give you plenty of space to break and clear the runway as fast as you can.
@CaptainM I totally understand what you are saying mate :) but I feel this will only work in extended runways ex: lax, San Diego, ont just to name a few. This wouldn’t work in a place like st marten, especially if they are flying a 76 and bigger.
