1.) Evaluate the flight plan for accuracy.
- Is the destination airport within the New York ARTCC or one ARTCC away? If yes, then the routing should be verbatim from the PRD.
- Is the destination airport more than one ARTCC away from the origin airport? If yes, then the routing does not need to match the PRD, unless there is an LOA route, which would be highlighted in green. For example, a route from JFK to CYYZ must match the PRD. However, a route from JFK to MIA does not need to match the PRD.
2.) Attempt to reroute the pilot via the PRD if a rerouting is necessary.
Ask the pilot if he or she can accept a reroute. If yes, then issue the reroute. If no, proceed to step 3.
3.) Issue the clearance.
In all cases if a pilot is too new to accept an amended clearance, coordinate with the proper controllers as necessary for the pilot to fly "as filed."
