Along similar listening lines, and during bad weather at O'hare I have heard the approach controllers direct the pilots to proceed to the "Converging Runway 4 approach" It seems to happen only during ILS conditions.
As a true layman I read that the controllers have gone to one runway only for access as it seems there is a great reduction in air speed required by the pilots from the controllers.
I'm sure this is not accurate but could you clarify one you have a moment. Big Thanks!
