More Information


Replicated while controlling yesterday:

iPhone 8
iOS 13.7
Version 20.02.00 (455)

Option is available at time, not at others. With this, Flight Following request sometimes didn’t have an option for me to respond either.

Also able to reproduce on Tower and Ground frequencies.

Device: iPhone 8
OS: iOS 14.0.1
Build: 20.02.00 (455)

Issue: when pilots request runway crossing, the pop-up boxes for “Cross Runway” and “Progressive Taxi” don’t appear. Issue resolved itself after pilots took off and landed again.

Reproduced today on center.

Device: iPad Mini 4th Generation
OS: IOS 14.0
Build: 20.02.00 (455)

Sometimes the option to respond is there, sometimes it isn’t. Happens with check in and flight following.

Reproduced on Heathrow Ground on some pushback requests

Galaxy A70
Android 10
20.02.00 (981)

Reproduced just now at NZWN (GTS): One pilot requested “departure to the south” and I couldn’t reply to him, the green box which should appear for the response didn’t appear…another example was a go-around, the pilot himself did announced a G/A but I couldn’t respond to him, once again no green button for the response…

Device: iPad Pro (2018)
OS: IPad Os 14.0.1
IF: 20.02.00 (459)

Still have this issue

iPad Air 3rd generation 2019
IOS 14.0
Beta 20.02.00 (462)

Anyone able to find a consistent thing to reproduce? Seems random, can’t reproduce it. A video would help.

Edit: All of them are the large quick replies though.

Okay guys, just tested this out on V2 and I didn’t have any problems with responding. I was able to respond for G/As and Departure request…

Not able to reproduce anymore, was maybe a bug or something🤷🏻‍♂️

Anyone have a video (not a replay)?

When i’ll control again i’ll show you

Reproduced today Helsinki Centre. Couldn’t respond to check-ins and flight following requests for about 2 minutes. Fine before and after.

@Trio video here

00:03 - Finnair 853 - Check in
00:12 - IFSA028 - Check in
00:19 - Hansaline 90 - Flight Following
00:38 - THAI12 - Check in

Device Info:
iPad Pro 10.5
iOS 14.2 Public Beta 18B5061e
IF 20.02.00 build 465

Reproduced the same issue as @jakcharvat and my screenshots were exactly the same. I’d say I’m unable to respond to about 25% of the checkins/FF.

Were any of the aircraft that couldn’t respond Beta aircraft or were they all RTM aircraft?

@Robert_Mustillo @jakcharvat @Davide_DC @Sashaz55 @AsternAviation @Chitown @Pilot_Dave @Ecoops123 @yoshi_flyer @ToasterStroodie @AviationReports

I believe most were RTM.
