The other day this happened to me. I was cooking along the B taxiway at KSAN in an A330 at 20-25kt and There was an AS A320 at a gate on the inside west pier of terminal 1. JUST as I get about to where the guy is, without calling taxi, instead of doing a normal thing and pushing back to the ramp, starting engines and then entering the active taxiway, this guy pushes all the way back to the B taxiway forcing me to stop short (good thing we don’t have high brake temps in IF!) then pushes around some more after getting in the way. I barely wiggled by him on the taxiway centerline and kept on proceeding for the threshold of the runway at C1. What does this guy do? He NEEDLESSLY crosses the runway at an intersection behind me and taxis at ridiculous speed… So I arrive at C1, call for takeoff before he even got all the way turned onto the opposite side taxiway, put the strobes and landing lights on and started to line up, this clown calls for takeoff, cuts me off from lining up and takes off from an intersection.
I later messaged the user and asked him to be more considerate when at an uncontrolled field as he could’ve gotten ghosted if there was a mod/ATC around.
His excuse: “I was late to an event because I was in class”
Morals of the story:
Don’t cut people off in line after they’ve called takeoff and begun to take the runway.
Don’t fly IF while you’re in class!
