Ted Chan. 10

Wed Feb 25, 2004 9:32 am

Does Ted offer the cockpit audio on channel 10 like other UAL flight?

I am flying Ted on Thursday from LAS-SFO, and can't wait!

I don't know if they do or not, but just a minor correction...it's Channel 9.

Hope this wasn't nixed by the marketing people in favor of live entertainment by the FAs as per Song and Southwest....

yes, Ted 1501 from SFO to LAS on sunday had Ch 9 operating with ATC. remember, it's still at the pilot's discretion.

sorta amusing... they were calling it "United 1501", but for runway directions they said "Northwest XXX fall in behind the Ted Airbus on Bravo..."

Wireless-God, I can't wait to fly Trying to Expedite Demise 1500 from LAS-SFO in about 6 weeks then...(I fly US Airways coming in, not that I mind them, but they don't have Channel 9, or any IFE for that matter)

Which makes sense. The Northwest pilots were looking out their windows for an airplane to follow, so telling them to follow Ted is more useful than telling them to follow United. I remember listening to a ground frequency somewhere (I want to say LAX from inside a UAL aircraft, but I'm not positive) and recall hearing instructions for aircraft to follow a "white United 737" referring to a white-topped Shuttle by United aircraft.
