Temporary Frequency Change

Recommended Posts

I was flying from EDDP to LOWW and, nearing LOWW, was cleared down to 16000ft. I descended to 16000ft and later asked for a temporary frequency change so that I could listen to Vienna ATIS. This request was granted, I listened to ATIS and reported back without a problem.but ATC did not tell me to descend any further. I asked to descend several times but was told "not at this time" each time. I ended up flying over the airport at 16000ft. My suspicion is that ATC intended me to descend at a certain point but at that time I was listening to ATIS.  The descent point was passed without ATC asking me and as that point never arrived again ATC did not tell me to descend. Had I flown in a circle and passed the point again ATC might have told me to descend. Does this sound feasible.
