Wonder how DFS get away with rostering only 3 controllers for what is normally 4 control positions ie Air, GMC, GMP and delivery.
I suppose the last two could be bandboxed when it's not too busy but Air needs total concentration; I've been in a 737 (on a 'Fam Flight, remember them?) at 4nm on 08 with another lander ahead and the controller has still got 2 departures away before we were cleared to land (or do they not do that any more).
