This is sort of ridiculous though. If they had designated one rwy for landing and one for take-off, this would not have happened. That is why there is a 2nd rwy, and isn't that the rush-hour at KIX? Use the second rwy KIX ATC!!!
|Quoting Carpethead (Reply 2):|
I nor most pilots wouldn't want to taxi from the 24R/6L to any parking spot, it takes a longer time and its more enviromentally friendly to land 24L/6R, as long as there isn't a back-up for take-offs.
The departing aircraft just has to wait a couple of minutes.

Air Canada 767 accidentally entered the runway at KIX while a JAL plane was on approach, forcing the JAL plane to do a go-around

Taxi into position and hold" until last autumn, so the pilot might have misunderstood the controller's instructions
|Quoting Ktachiya (Reply 6):|
IMO, Taxi into postion and hold is much easier to understand than, Line up and Wait.
|Quoting CF105Arrow (Reply 8):|
Air Canada's Flight 36, despite an order from the air traffic controller to hold its position, nevertheless landed, using the runway intended for Japan Airlines Flight 767 from Okinawa. The two carriers were Boeing 767s, Air Canada had 216 aboard, JAL had 243 passengers and crew. On August a China Airlines Boeing 737 exploded at Naha Airport in Okinawa
