Reading trip reports etc on flights within the US and some int' flights , CH9 is available to pax to listen to air traffic control.
Question to fellow Aussie users,or anybody out there that may know the answer why this is not available in Australia ?

Seems to be a Merkin phenomena. I usually just listen in to my scanner when on the ground and concentrate on more important tasks (such as getting drunk) once on board the aircraft.

Ch 9 on UA is by Capt's discretion. So the captain might not have it turned on. I did have it on a return flight from SYD a few years ago. Of course that was before 9/11.

It's not on all flights in the USA. ONLY United Airlines cares enough about its passengers to offer this cool channel. Though at the pilot's discretion, almost all of my United flights have had it turned on. Thank you to all of you UAL pilots out there.

UA has CH9 availabe on all flts. It is interesting to hear the ATC from centers around the world when you travel. If it was not on a specific flt, the captain did not have it turned on. You will find that most do turn it on for the customers' enjoyment. Feel free to ask a flight attendant to pass on your request to the flight deck if you are not hearing it.
