I like it when someone send Thank you good day message, I mostly sent it then back.
I always do this.
Here in Louisiana if someone says “thank you”, it is considered impolite if you do not say “you’re welcome”. Bunch of wankers…lol
I say “Thank You” to my controller after I land. Sometimes, I’ve been in a situation where the controller would say “Thank You” to me first lol. And in that case, I would say “Your Welcome”.
I try to always thank the controller if I’m flying, - and if the pilot thinks my ATC service was good, a thank you is definitely appreciated :)
I really appreciate it, I always respond when I have a chance or when it’s not busy.
I always respond to pilots who say thanks, only if to busy…but there are one or two pilots(dont say any names) who overdue it a little…and this conversation really happend:
P (Pilot) : Request Pushback
G (Ground): Pushback Approved
P: Thank you.
P: Ready to taxi to runway
T: Taxi to Runway xx, contact Tower when ready.
P: Thank you
P: Ready for take off runway xx
T: Cleared for takeoff
P: Thank you
P: Request frequency change
T: Thank you!!!
Weren’t you tempted to say “Avoid sending duplicate messages”? ;)
Nope, it was a bit annoying, but i guess he was so happy to be on advanced, he got a bit overexcited…(10647 XP)…😂
Thanks to ATC in Calgary and Toronto for good control on expert.
