At pretty much every airport there are taxiways that run parallel to the runway. At major airports, there may be a second taxiway which also runs parallel to the runway, for instance in Atlanta (Taxiways L and M):
Today I chose to fly at Toronto, which like Atlanta, has parallel taxiways. Since progressive taxi instructions in this game aren’t given with any taxiway names, you’re pretty much on your own to figure out where and how to taxi to you destination. This becomes a problem when there’s high traffic, like there is at CYYZ today. I threw this little diagram together to explain my situation:
I’ll take some responsibility for not being very aware of my surroundings (though the planes I got sandwiched by hadn’t rendered in until it was too late, and the airplane dots aren’t that helpful). By the way, the active runways were the 15s and the 06s. When I got in this situation I kind of panicked and left the flight. This was also on expert (yikes). So my question is when the taxiways are parallel like this, which taxiways should be used in which directions? Referring to this example, should I have taxied on A or B? My understanding was that departures use the inner taxiway and arrivals use the outer taxiway, so am I wrong?
