http://www.liveatc.net/forum/files/kjfk_-_stop_your_plain_116.mp3 Poor Iberia, they get the full brunt of a wonderful JFK ground controller. I do like American's response: ATC: Did Iberia just cut in front of you American?!?! AMR: Yeah, but he's bigger.... :D

I do love listening to that site, happened to be listening when that Midwest B717 had the emergency landing at BOS not long back, gives a whole new perspective on the thing. Can listen for ages.

Interesting that they cut short the phoenetic letters. Also, for such a busy airport they are so more relaxed, dont seem to have any structure behind what they say! Regardless of making a mistake with the readback, could it not be language barriers? I would have put a rather angry complaint in about that kind of attitude! Saying that though when I had my flight deck trip once upon a time (when Air 2000 was still a name in date ;)) The Spanish ATC were atrocious!

When i was departing New York the controller was very relaxed and had a long conversation with the MaxJet 757 about how well they were doing. Pilots seemed to be American!

That voice has been a source of entertainment on more than one occasion, very distinct and 'aggressive.'

Maybe the Pilots seemed to be American because Maxjet are American? Just a thought :diablo: Of course Maxjet is a B762, whereas Eos is a B752 Scott

New Yorkers are generally a bit sassy, but the Iberian Pilot wasn't exactly cooperative in following instructions.

The question is, is he in the right job with such a short fuse
