I was on expert server at LAX moments ago, landed on runway 25L, and the controller told me to
“when able turn contact ground on the taxiway”. I requested to cross runway 25R, and then controller said “please follow instructions”. So I requested taxi to parking before crossing the runway, and then he said taxi to parking, cross runway 25R. This is the first time I encountered this, because everytime I ask the tower "request runway crossing’, and then when I’m finished crossing, I request taxi to parking. And I’ve had no problems with that with other controllers. I’m just wondering why the controller said “please follow instructions” and usually I would expect to request runway crossing, then request taxi to parking.
note-- I always fly on expert server :)
