I was on board an IB
A320 going from MAD
10 days ago. After an endless taxi to RWY 36R we were #3 for takeoff, the first was an IB
MD87 followed by a BA
752 and then us. Right after the MD87 took off, our captain cut right in front of the BA
752 -I could not tell which intersection (I saw like 3) he used since I could not find a Barajas airport chart anywhere online- and started take off roll not 45 seconds after the MD87 was airborne. I have heard stories about IB
captains being scareless (when they used to fly here to MGA and we had bad weather they were the only ones that landed). Does that normally happens (cutting in front of a plane waiting for takeoff, or ATC giving them "preference" in take off since they're in their country?
