Multicultural Misunderstanding
  • A recent European Commission report on the
    "Impact of Multicultural and Multilingual Crews
    on Maritime Communication" 6 quotes the
    following example that took place during a period
    of military tension between Egypt and Greece
  • Egyptian pilots radioed in English their
    intention to land at an airbase on Cyprus and the
    Greek traffic controllers reportedly responded
    with silence. The Greeks intended thereby to
    indicate refusal of permission to land, but the
    Egyptians interpreted silence as assent.The
    result of the misunderstanding in this case was
    the loss of a number of lives when the Greeks
    fired on the planes as they approached the
    runway.
