Jetlink 2498

While I am sitting here at Chicago O’Hare airport, on the plane, I am listening to the Air Traffic Control (channel 9 on United Airlines aircraft). Here’s a wonderful conversation I just heard:

ATC: Jetlink 2498, ground?

ATC: Jetlink 2498, ground…

ATC: Jetlink 2498, Jetlink 2498, Jetlink 2498, O’Hare ground…

ATC: Jetlink 2498, GROUND!

(Some time passes…)

JL: Ground, Jetlink 2498 at Alpha 10
ATC: Jetlink 2498, DO NOT STOP THERE!
ATC: Jetlink 2498, Your company constantly does this, DO NOT LEAVE THIS FREQUENCY when you arrive at Alpha 10!
ATC: Jetlink 2498, MOVE YOUR AIRCRAFT RIGHT NOW, YOU CANNOT STOP THERE!!!

ATC: Jetlink 2498, YOU CANNOT STOP THERE (Some directions on where to go.)

(More time passes…)

ATC: Jetlink 2498, PLEASE MOVE YOUR AIRCRAFT!! There are 20 people behind you!! Your company constantly does this… you CANNOT STOP THERE!!

It was quite entertaining…
