NAS Controllers

Mon Jan 03, 2005 10:31 am

Just wondering if anyone else who flies into and out of NAS has trouble with the controllers? I was out there on Thursday and we left the gate and had to Taxi to 09, when we inquired about using 14 they said unable due to the runway being wet? Now the winds were 060 @ 5kts. We were #17 for departure and ended up waiting for 50min! I have never experienced a more incompetent group of controllers in my life time! Even when we go to HAV, you have to listen carefully, but they are efficient. Love to hear from some of you who have flown in and out of NAS lately.
