London Control, good evening BAWXXX with you FL4000.

after 15 seconds laughing...
Station calling London, say again.

here comes the pilot, 150% confident of himself...
BAWXXX with you, FL4000.

another 15 seconds laughing...

That sounds suspiciously like something that happened on a stream of Matt Davies controlling LON_CTR (not on CTP either). Same dialogue too, to a tee.

You sure that anecdote's yours, Nestor?

Me: Direct ATUDU, cleared RNAV approach runway 24.
Pilot: Unable RNAV approach
Me: What approach would you like?
Pilot: As close to a straight line as possible please.

Aircraft: Lisboa Approach, good evening, (...), requesting clearance to Porto.
LPPT_APP: Good evening, cleared to Porto (...), squawk 4762.
Aircraft: Cleared to Porto (...), squawk 4760.
LPPT_APP: Squawk 4762.
Aircraft: Squawk 4760
LPPT_APP: Squawk 4762.
Aircraft: Squawk 4662 sorry
LPPT_APP: Almost. 4762.
Aircraft: Squawk 4762.
LPPT_APP: Readback correct.

Not sure what was happening.

#524134 Today flying:

United asks why he is on a certain heading...

MIA_CTR: UALXXX, you're on the heading because you were way too high and I need to descend you.
MIA_CTR: UALXXX, turn left
MIA_CTR: UALXXX, Turn left heading 270.
UALXXX: Given there is no traffic around me to cause this vectoring. I will continue offline thanks

Well alrighty then.. :lol:
