The policy of giving the landing clearance concurrently to multiple aircraft clearly invites this kind of incident, be it due to stepped on transmissions, radio failure, or, as in this case operator error. Implementing a safer system seems sensible!
Not so. CDG give landing clearances as soon as you check in with them, despite being possibly number 2 or 3 on approach. I believe itís only the case if using separate runways for landing and takeoff
