All time favourite: "Springbok" from South African Airways

Pan Am's "Clipper" was a great callsign.
BA's "Speedbird"

My favorites are Pan Am's Clipper and TWA's Ambassador. They bring to mind images of Pan American Airways when she was the most prestigous airline the world over, and when TWA was a dominant international airline, before Icahn.

Some ATC use "T-Way" for TWA. I know they do up in the tower at ORD.

"Waterki" is indeed the callsign of TSA which operates as Delta Connection and TWConnection at JFK, US Airways Express at PIT and TWExpress at STL.
