Air China and the Language Barrier

air china

Have you ever worked an Air China flight?  If not, you are in for a real treat.  This Air China flight was on the JFK Tower controller’s last nerve, and rightfully so.  There is nothing more frustrating than trying to communicate with a pilot that doesn’t speak ATC and doesn’t speak English.  It makes for a very rough stressful day at the office.  Fortunately, no one was injured in the making of this video except perhaps Air China’s pride, that is if he even understood what was going on in the first place.

What do you think?
