Waiting For The Numbers?

Sat Sep 25, 2004 9:22 am

Hey all. I was listening to my scanner today and an AA flight 13** was holding 'to the side' prior to positioning rnwy 23 since he was waiting for the numbers. During the convo. he said to the tower 'they haven't sent the numbers yet' Who are they and what numbers are they refering to??? I'm assuming they were for W&B but not 100% sure.

Thanks for you assistance.

AAR90 or someone else from AA can confirm/tweak this, but Load Control (DFW) has to send them V-speeds and power settings. I think they get the data via ACARS...
