Notes

  1. The message at 1607:06 UTC is an automated response by ACARS on the aircraft to indicate that transmission (to the aircraft) of the Final Load Sheet was successful.
  2. This sequence of messages begins with the Loadsheet FINAL with the identifier 990I; followed by the technical acknowledgement MAS-S (link ack) 990L; then at 1607:06 UTC the message MAS-S (successful) with the identifier 990S.
  3. An elapsed time of 34 seconds between the first message and the confirmation is not unreasonable considering that the satellite channel is time-shared with other users and messages are prioritized.
  4. Note that the automated response at 1607:06 UTC is not the requested acknowledgement from the pilot. That was sent from the aircraft at 1609:28 UTC.
