The other day I was given these taxi instructions:"Taxi runway 27R via A, D, follow the Merlin." Taxiway D to Runway 27R crosses runway 35. Is asking the ground controller if I am cleared to cross runway 35 unnecessary due to the "follow" command?
d. When an aircraft/vehicle is instructed to “follow” traffic and requires a runway crossing, issue a runway crossing clearance in addition to the follow instructions and/or hold short instructions, as applicable. EXAMPLE- “Follow (traffic), cross Runway Two-Seven Right.” or “Follow (traffic), cross Runway Two Seven-Right, hold short Runway Two-Seven Left.”
