Is it normal for controllers to tell a plane with an engine down to contact approach without saying anything else?

Well, it at least shows she understood the emergency and offered an immediate return. She gave the frequency - all other information can wait and be exchanged later on. Swapping frequencies is quick, but saves the extra delay for tower/departure from coordinating and relaying - so speeds up communication for all involved. Also, a single engine failure usually isn't such a big deal, which would prevent a crew from changing frequencies - unlike Sully's double engine failure, where changing frequencies rightfully wasn't even suggested. And when a pilot prefers to stay on the frequency anyway, or delay the approach, he'll surely just say so (no need to ask).

So, yes, that was an extremely brief no-nonsense reply, but not really bad.

Is it often for RJTT controllers(or Japanese controllers) to say 'Good Morning' to pilots who came in from another time zone?

I was listening to the RJTT feed and discovered that the controller said 'good morning' to a UAL pilot..

EDIT: Not sure why but I am unable to upload the audio clip nor the original audio files I got from the site. I keep getting a "Timed Out" message.

I think this might have been due in part to the file size being much larger than necessary. The file you sent me was 13.6 MB, whereas the re-encoded version I've attached to this post is down to 2.97 MB.

Outstanding work by all involved! Typical great ATC work. Ground emergency crews and of course the aircrew in getting the plane down right down the middle and the quick evac by the attendants.
Also great work on the edit and video.

I don't care if you readback the altimeter unless you read it back incorrectly.

Except then you have to listen to the Guard nazis.  I swear, some pilots just need to chill out.  I've listened before where another controller asked a pilot to try an aircraft on guard and as soon as he did, a bunch of people yelled "On Guard!"  I was happy that the pilot finally said back, "Yeah, I know...I'm trying to do a favor for ATC, is that okay with you?"

To follow up on Setscan's comment. If the incoming flight was at altitude for several hours the fuel would have slowly cooled towards the ambient temperature, -50 to -60. If it was fairly humid in Austin, combined with fuel that was still at, say -20, ice may have started forming on the wings hence the need to deice. Condensation on the bottom of the wings is fairly common when the airplane has been at high altitude for a while then descends into warm humid air on the ground. Where there is air in the tank's you don't get the condensation, it is only where there is fuel.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that!  Also know as "automatic long-winded pilot squelch"  grin
