264 Max reads listener letters and feedback. An FAA employee recommends pilots adopt the newer phraseology for declaring an emergency, which is “requesting priority handling.” He believes pilots are reluctant to declare an emergency, as it suggests that what went wrong was their fault. The newer phraseology results in the same service provided by ATC; they’ll still ask for souls on board, and fuel remaining, and you can still deviate as needed, but you don’t need to say the words “I’m declaring an emergency.”
