    It is reported that the German controllers at Frankfurt Airport expect pilots to know their gate location and how to get there without any assistance from them. This conversation is said to have taken place between the control tower in Frankfurt and a British Airways 747 (radio call Speedbird 206) after landing:

    Speedbird 206: "Good morning Frankfurt, Speedbird 206 clear of the runway."

    Ground: "Guten morgan, taxi to your gate."

    The British Airways 747 pulls onto the main taxiway and stops.

    Ground: "Speedbird, do you not know where you are going?"

    Speedbird 206: "Stand by, ground, I'm looking up the gate location now."

    Ground (with impatience): "Speedbird 206, have you never flown to Frankfurt before?"

    Speedbird 206 (coolly): "Yes, in 1944. But I didn't stop." :madaddy:
