Is this a bug?

SOCAL ATC told me to expect vectors to runway 09 at Los Angeles?

Then he told me correction, then asked for intentions, and after I asked for ILS approach to 09 at San Diego, the response was correct.

Controllers don’t do bugs 😉 was this on advanced or playground? Should not really happen on advanced.

Advanced. This is not controllers mistake. There IS no runway 09 at LAX.

There is no runway 09, even the ocean facing runways

Yeah there is not a runway 09 at KLAX. Only KSAN

I’m not 100% sure, but I think in the LAX area there’s an airport which is called “Los Angeles [something else]”, (apart from KLAX).

And Tijuana

Regardless of the other 09’s in SoCal, we shouldn’t be getting 09 at LAX. I know there is an issue with San Diego and San Diego North Island identification with ATC, but I don’t believe that there is a similar problem around Los Angeles.
