Airlines typically don't ask for VFR, however in the states it is quite common for someone to specify IFR or VFR in your request on CD- particularly with someone who has a lot of time as a CFI alternating between IFR and VFR. Surely you haven't been overseas sipping cognac for that long?

My technique is to not state IFR as it is quite obvious, but I hardly classify it as toolish.

PDC capable stations, we use ACARS... most international places I go to do not support PDC.

Easy does it little buckaroo. This is supposed to be a humorous thread.

20+ years worth. Some of the finest too may I say.

This epic thread must... not... die.

My TOTD goes to the FA who thought she'd sneak into the cockpit's crew bunk area and steal a couple of the plastic-wrapped blanket/pillow combos. When busted in the act - "You guys always have extras, and they never have enough for us."

Anybody else find it borderline toolish when the captain's boarding PA contains a longer than needed dissertation covering the flight crews' background, experiences, and total flight time?
