Very dangerous information sign. Some pilots are saying "Lumps of Coal". It is also never clear whether there are supposed to be spacing between the words. Usually "You have information ---" is a one-word sign, not three. Could have been a big disaster (or disasters!). OK, just call me Scrooge. (That's one word.)

The ATIS is the pre-recorded radio channel at each airport that gives the weather, altimeter, active runways, construction areas, and other information that pilots need to know before leaving the gate or landing. It's always done with this really-boring voice. Each of these reports is assigned a word according to the aviation alphabet. So, the first one of these of the day at an airport would be labelled Alpha. When conditions change, a new ATIS is recorded and it's labelled Bravo. Next one is Charlie, and down to Zulu, then resets to Alpha. So when pilots are checking in with certain tower people, they'll say that "we have Alpha" so that the controller knows that the cockpit crew have the current weather and airport info. Apparently in Maui, they've changed the official words just for Christmas Day so that it's some holiday-themed alphabet, with Lump of Coal being L and Mistletoe being M. On top of that, the woman who's handling flight clearances is rephrasing her sentence so that she accepts the Lump of Coal, which is not how they usually respond to the pilot's sentence.

By the way, Kahalui is OGG, not HOG. Its ICAO is PHOG because the Pacific region follows the non-North America standard of using the second letter as a subregion (H = Hawaii) rather using all of the last three as the same as the FAA/IATA like the K (CONUS) and C (Canada) airports do.

Lump of Coal is what you get in your stocking at Christmas if you have been bad. ATIS usually follows the ICAO phonetic alphabet so A is Alpha, B is Beta, etc. Normally L would be Lima and M would be Mike, but for Christmas they changed it to Lump of coal and Mistletoe.

Each ATIS (weather and other airport information) update gets a different designation. Usually it's the phonetic alphabet (first report of the day will be Alpha, second will be Bravo, third update will be Charlie, etc). When calling in ATC for the first time before departing or when approaching an airport, pilots are supposed to report they have an updated report by saying "...information Alpha" or "ATIS Bravo", or "we have Charlie", what have you. They decided to have fun with it for Christmas, and have one of the weather updates be labeled "Lump of Coal", so pilots had to call in "we have Lump of Coal".

Why does Delivery already check requested levels??

Vor 4 Monate
djninjamusic
djninjamusic

The ones requesting FL3x0 will be flying long-distance over the ocean (Oakland Oceanic airspace) along designated "tracks." No radar coverage over that huge airspace means that each plane is separated from other traffic the old fashioned way: tracking each plane by flight level and airspeed, making sure that no planes cross each other or overrun each other. When the pilots ask for a Flight Level in this case, the Delivery controller has to check with the Oceanic controller to make sure that there is an available "slot" along the requested flight level at roughly around the time that the plane will be on that particular track. If there is a slot, then the pilot gets their clearance and proceeds with their flight. If no slot is currently available (e.g. a bunch of planes departing around the same time and traveling along the same track), then the clearance is amended to either another flight level with an available slot (hence, the United pilot asking for FL390 as primary choice, and FL370 as a secondary choice, just in case 390 is full), or the flight is held for release until a slot does open up
