tmb laying chickenThis from the Flight International issue dated November 22, 2016. Playing chicken!

A couple of years ago, flying into ZRH (Zurich, Switzerland), just the day after the landing fees increased once more, the following conversation took place while on hold between a Cessna 172 on final and the controller. It was a busy day with lots of commercial traffic.

Controller: “Cleared to land runway 28; winds calm, please expedite and can you make it a short landing to the first exit?”

Cessna: “Negative, we pay for the whole runway, we use the whole runway!”
