callsign Radiotelephony | Learning Zone

An aircraft call sign is a group of alphanumeric characters used to identify an aircraft in air-ground communications.

This incident involves China Eastern unknowingly transmitting blind, (possibly by accidentally keying the mic) and being unable to receive transmissions from TWR.  

Notice how China Eastern was able to transmit but not receive. In the circumstances above how could TWR identify that the aircraft had a problem and was unable to respond? 

The use of similar call signs by aircraft operating in the same area and especially on the same RTF frequency often causes potential and actual flight safety incidents. This hazard is usually referred to as “call sign confusion”.
