Just 2 questions please . 1: If you are decending by following your flight plan, and you request an approach and are told to expect vectors, then should you hold your current heading AND stop the decent and maintain present altitude, or does approach expect you to hold heading and continue with your present v/s until vectors are given?
2nd: if decending by a published star and then approach says decend and maintain 9000, should you assuming from that altitude vector that they want you to hold present heading too. Or would you follow the lateral course of the star while following this new atc vector? (Cause today i had this happen. I was told to decend and maintain 9000 so i took off lnav and vnav and held heading. Then approach said i hadnt followed instructions, continue as filed i think from memory)
