this just came into my mind and the cat maybe have killed me out of curiosity haha...
i am just wondering if you pilots do encounter language or rather accent problems with ATc of a specific Country such as China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand etc??
Yes, it's a problem. It can be particularly difficult when the other pilot(s) that I'm flying with have little or no international experience. It more or less becomes a single pilot operation for a while. I've been doing it for a lot of years and I still have occasional problems. The Thai, Taiwanese and for some reason, the Indian controllers can be a challenge for me.
I have the solution though. I say "Say again" three times and then broadcast what I intend to do and then do it.
