Hello to all community members!
I was recently at Rome Fiumicino LIRF for the FNF.
Upon reaching runway 25, I was instructed by the tower to line up and wait (LUAW). There were 3 aircraft inbound to Runway 34L and i understood that my turn would be after all three of them since spacing was very tight.
But after a while I received a system warning for sitting idle on the runway with a threat to ghost unless I takeoff or exit the runway. I did not have clearance to takeoff and neither could I move off the runway since there is no atc command to notify the controller of my intentions.
I decided to end the flight immediately, as I was not willing to risk a ghost on my spotless grade stats.
However, my question to devs and staff is that before the recent update, LUAW commands did not result in a system warning no matter how long we were there, since it was a valid atc command. Then why is it implemented now?
I am completely against this and with all due respect, it should be removed before an innocent, law-abiding pilot like myself does get actually ghosted for following the rules correctly.
