If EGLL is busy do I sometimes get landing clearences right away? Probably do

  1. ATC often give pushback and taxi commands together for speed. It happens in real life too.

  2. That is just a bug

Try reading this;

I can assure you IFATC are an amazing group and are literally expert controllers! Even though there may be a delay you must see how hard their work is!

So let’s start from the top
Ground told you to expect a runway, and gave you a taxi instruction prior to your request which saves us and you time. Totally fine to do.

I was on Center and if you ask Center for an instrument approach it’s going to be denied and your going to be told to expect vectors. The system just says the runway is closed. It’s not something the controller does.

Tower should wait for your request on handoff from approach.

Any other questions?

We don’t necessarily have to wait for your request.
We can give taxi clearances and landing clearances without you sending a request.

You shouldn’t give a landing clearance until you know intentions.

Well, you didn’t request for touch & go, so it’s not a big deal :)
