I was just on the Expert server at EDDF. There is a problem with some pilots. There was no longer an approach controller who initially put me in a holding pattern that I had to exit and go inbound on the ILS. When I was coming inbound, there were about 4 planes coming in on final just below 5000ft and they chose 07R and 07L. I then decided to land on 07C. At about 3500ft, I was established and told the UNICOM I was on final. At about 700-800ft a pilot said he wanted to take off from 07C. His name was Captain Viera I think. When he announced takeoff, I was definitely visible to him and I kept announcing final on 07C. But still he decided to lack PATIENCE and take off. I had to go around and enter right downwind and then had to go around a second time because of another British Airways aircraft. I eventually just ended the flight because there was no point. I was very annoyed.
- Controllers should try and clear the airspace and ensure all pilots are okay before closing. A suggestion to the controller is don’t start what you can’t finish.
- Pilots should try and apply PATIENCE by not taking off and holding short when an inbound aircraft is below 1500ft. Obviously if it’s a high airport you have to run the calculation of altitude mentally. But just hold short because it’s literally just a minute of wait time.
Thank you all for reading.
