I've been an Air Traffic Controller (USA) for 24 years now and I have never heard of an incident involving confusion between "Affirmative" and "Negative".  And I have never heard of the FAA proposal to change to "Affirm".  The consonants in each word make it  distinct. Maybe thats where foreign english pronounciations are causing a problem.

Good question. Although it took two pages of posts before anyone noticed it, or thought to ask. Interesting to note that it was a controller who caught the error...    smiley (And that a number of other controllers failed to...)
