    Delta is always right in Atlanta,

    One time I crossed the active, ATC had me turn around, had me stop in front of the lines so I could see the lines to stop before crossing.

    Sounds like This Delta Pilot might need a visual, before he has one of real traffic.

    Between the two of them, the bigger idiot is the one who decided to settle a petty squabble through a tabloid.

    Sounds overblown. It's somewhat less gentle than most ATC interactions, but not explosive nor prolonged. I say there's nothing to see here.

    Of course, the same website that describes this as "shocking" also can't tell the difference between a taxiway and a runway: "...landed on the runway called Mike...", "...Lima,' in reference to the runway ...".
