I have found a airliner identification mystery, amistake which is repeated on all available databases. This is about the Air Asia 737-3Y0, ln.1813. All databases including a.net show this aicraft as having been transferred to the Indonesia division in 2007 and reregistered PK-AWX, and again reregitered to PK-AWC in 2008. I´m sure this is wrong. Several 2009 photos on the net show a PK-AWX.
As PK-AWX it wears the "Amazing" billboard livery in 2008 and in 2009, while PK-AWC is in standard livery at the same time as these photos, the first two taken on the same day, clearly illustrate. PK-AWC, which unlike -AWX as a further distinction has white-painted antennas and other small individual details must therefore be a different, yet unidentified aircraft.

Searching around, you are correct that most places show PK-AWC as 24547/1813. It seems most likely that this airframe is still PK-AWX.
However, http://www.airframes.org/ shows PK-AWC as 24677/1837 (ex-9M-AEC).
I have found airframes.org to be pretty reliable (unlike a.net where quoted c/ns and l/ns are frequently incorrect especially on business jets where the same registration is used on multiple examples of the same type)
