you might find it is hard to understand ATC but when you hear it all the time you get used to how ATC speak. People ask me how do you understand what he just said I say it’s easy. My brain is tuned to it. Been listening to it for over 35years.

You converse in english over the the airways as all who is listening can hear what is being said. I tow aircraft for Qantas and hold a Cat 4 license (renewed every 2 yrs) that allows me to go anywhere on the airfields including runways and taxiways. I hear people talking about language, indeed language can be an issue but the rules and taxiway/runway markings are the same worldwide. So it should not be an issue. Pilots should always confirm any instructions together and confirm they both heard the same thing. I find Chinese pilots are the worst for misunderstanding and routine command. I hear ATC often have to repeat it 2 or 3 times before they understand what was ask of them to do. RIP to my fellow aviation workers who died only trying to help others.

Posted in: Haneda airport begins clearing plane wreckage from runway See in context

There was a NOTAM that the stop bars not serviceable. This could have caused confusion with the JCG pilots. I am a Cat 4 driver for Qantas Airways and cross runways a few times a day in Sydney. Though not as busy as Haneda we still have strict procedures that we follow. I also have to sit for my Cat 4 license every2 years. I also hold a Radio certificate of proficiency. The pilots also should have confirmed with each other about what was said on the radio and what they where doing.
