If you thought “line up and wait” referred to that cluster of airplanes bunched up at the end of the active runway on a sunny afternoon, you will have to learn a new definition. Starting next month, the tower instruction to “position and hold” (meaning to taxi into the takeoff position on the runway then hold there until issued a takeoff clearance) will change to the ICAO standard “line up and wait“. I suspect there is going to be a period of confusion while pilots and controllers get used to the new terminology.
