France VS Germany: Results 0-1 - Highlights FIFA World Cup 2014

Hi Captain,

I just watched the soccer game between Germany vs France at the World Championship 2014. A friend of mine is just on the flight at this time.

My question is, will all planes in the air be informed by ATC in time about the score or you need to listen to the radio in flight?

Thank you.

Cheers from Germany!

Klaus

Hi Klaus,

It is not an airline policy to keep all passengers informed about the scores of the soccer matches at the World Cup. However, if your friend is on a Lufthansa flight and the Captain is a German, in all likelihood, an informal request via the Flight Attendant to him will usually be obliged.

In fact, if Germany wins the game, (yes they did!) he would be too happy to pass the information to the all passengers as well!

Again it is not the policy for the Air Traffic Controllers to relay the results of the match to the planes unless requested by the pilots during the lean period of the air communication.

Sometimes the pilots can also get the live score on the radios in the cockpit.
