I’ve tried searching for the answer to this question on the forum and online but to no avail so I thought I’d ask the community:
I’ll give a scenario: if I’m at KLGA and I request to cross runway 22 (which is open), why does the tower reply “cross runway 4” (which is closed) at the opposite heading? How is it determined? I thought it’d be by runway closure but it seems that the tower is going by which runway I’m closest to. Thanks.
