Tower Transmissions

Sat Sep 13, 2003 12:55 am

What airlines regularly allow the PAX to monitor Air traffic control transmissions?
I flew Business on United from EWR to LGW a couple of years ago and was just glued to that channel.
It was fascinating stuff to hear the aircraft in front warn of turbulence, then hear our cockpit crew be advised to climb to avoid said turbulance.
Is it available only in business and or first class service?

Channel 9 is available in all classes on UA mainline flights, providing the cockpit crew decides to turn it on.

They still let the cabin hear the radio transmissions? I loved that when I flew on Untied a few years ago but I thought the TSA had deemed anyone interested in what was going on in the cockpit a security risk.
