New York ATC

New York's JFK airport was closed for a few hours due to snow, and when it reopened, taxiways and aprons were still a partly ploughed mess. Someone I know recorded their air traffic controllers' famous sense of humour.

Aircraft being handed off to ground by the tower were being told words to the effect of, "Welcome to New York. Good luck finding your gate. Contact ground on point niner."

An Iceland Air flight landed and called ground for taxi. The controller asked them if the winterscape "looked like home" to which they responded "it looks more like home than home looks right now."
