The Title of this thread speaks for itself. Place in your post your favourite callsigns.

I vote:
1) Speedbird (British Airways)
2) Citrus (AirTran)

*Speedbird will probably be voted hundreds of times.  Wink

Cheers

In the bizjet arena, try saying: Exec Jet a number of times. The callsign gets jumbled after awhile.

I really like CP's of empress. Even though I prefer AC, I thought Empress was always a good call sign. Now Canadian North uses it I believe.

Edit to add: Come to think of it when we had a CF-18 come and do some low and overs in YLW it was late 2000hrs or so and his call sign was Nightmare ###, it was nice seeing him do some low and overs at night with A/B on. On his departure he did about 5-7 low and overs again.

Hey guys,

Hapag Lloyd Express just changed their callsign from EXCELLENCE to YELLOWCAB
Well, their aircrafts look like cabs, so it fits...
