Sabre, how come you added this unrelated question to my thread about flight plan setup? You couldn't start a new one about this? It doesn't cost anything, you know...
how to ensure that ATC sends you to the destination runway
- did you ask that first didn't you?
Watching working ACARS could be instrumental to predict which runway to land on, or be ready to override if a different rwy is instructed, this is how. Doesn't cost you anything to chew on it, does it?
However I respect your sensitive privacy here, so I'm leaving this thread.
