I was bored today while waiting for a bus and called up JFK ATIS on my cell phone to see what runways were in use. I got very confused by two things:
First, they said "VORDME Runway 22 left, approach and use Runway 13 left."
What does that mean? If they are using VORDME Rwy 22, why would they be landing on 13L?
My other thing was when they said "......approach and use Runway 13 left, depart runway 31 right."
Isn't that the same Runway? The means planes deparitng are going head to head with plane that are landing, right?
Did I miss something here?
Also, if it helps, they said some about noise abatement.
What's the deal here?
