Going into YXL a little while ago, in IMC there was a aircraft on approach and we were number 2, instead of giving us a hold we slowed down, and this particular controller cleared us to the IAF, than the IF, and FAF. We would be cleared for the approach momentarily.
As soon as the other aircraft was down we were clear the approach, which we were already set up and flying, just with altitude restriction.
To me this was extremely effiecient and actually the first time that I saw this done. Exellent job in my mind.
I will ask this one little question on it, he held us at 5,000, while doing this, is there any way you can get us a little lower or is incase there is a miss on the other aircraft.
No pun intended on that question though you did an excellent job, keep it up.
This thread came up by the down and clear thread, thats why i thought of it.
Either way keep up the good work guys and gals of YWG Centre.

Everyone knows what crappy service the customer gets at YXL, just ask DOC!!!
BTW how is that New Year Resolution of DOC's doing, anyway?
