Mouse over the airline or airport code and you will see what it is.

Mousing over 3-letter airport codes and 2-letter airline codes usually reveals the name.

However some people post the 3 letter code for obscure airports around the world which do not show up, which is frustrating because they might not the name of the city they are talking about. It's also a good idea to only use the 3-letter codes and not the 4-letter codes for airports since the mousing over feature only works for 3-letter codes.

(sorry for the gripe)



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Quoting RoseFlyer (Reply 4):

A lot of people also use the wrong codes. Recently I've seen WJ for WestJet (should be WS) and SW for Southwest ( WN ). (And I've been flamed for pointing out the errors of their ways)

While many would suggest that we are just being picky, it does pay to know and use the right codes. If you don't know the right code, look it up - or spell it out.

Quoting Airbusted (Thread starter):

There certainly is:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_airline_call_signs

Probably the easiest way to see most airlines' callsigns, codes, and names.
