Haven’t flown on IF for a few weeks, so I decided to try and get back into it. Good flight overall (apart from a easily avoidable speed violation that has irritated me too much…) and I am given clearance to land at KLAX 25R. I DID NOT state I was on final, because I had already been given clearance, should I have done? Anyway, sure enough ~30 seconds before touchdown, that big 777 that is holding short, decides to pull onto the runway. I just rage quit.
Should I have stated I was on final? and why would departure have been trying to get me to contact them, too?
