Yesterday, while waiting for clearance to enter the ramp, AF8 asked Ground to move the snow removal crew away from their aircraft because they were afraid they'd have to de-ice if they stayed as close as they were. Surely, the plane would have to de-ice before departure anyway, so why was the crew worried about ice while waiting for a gate?

In case it matters, they were shut down since it was going to be a long wait...

If there wasnt any precipitation, they wouldn't have to de ice before departure. That said, if the snow removal equipment happened to kick some snow or ice onto the aircraft they would then need to de-ice.

If the removal crew was moving snow, they could have easily caused snow to enter the engine intakes which would require de-icing (or at least a serious inspection) prior to re-starting the engines and taxiing to the gate.

Makes perfect sense, I should have thought about engine ingestion. Thanks a bunch.
