N921MM is a former JAL 744 which is scheduled to be operating for Transaero soon. I wonder why it has been ferried to MLB after maintenace in Rome/USA. Any insights?

Ah, that Melbourne. From the title, I thought you meant MEL, which would have been really odd.


Public service announcement: "It's" = "it is". To indicate posession, write "its." Looks wrong, but it's correct grammar

I thought so too, I wonder if anyone has ever confused the two on tickets before, like Sydney, Australia and Sydney, Canada...

Not forgetting London, Ontario and London, UK... That could be a silly mistake to make!

One that has happened to friends :

PWM Portland (Maine)- PDX Portland (Oregon)

on the opposite side of the country.

And for some reason, people often mix-up Austria and Australia..

So, I guess this mix-up happens more than I thought.

Remind me of the time my mother sent something via priority mail. The Clerk had written ONT on the package (presumably so it would not go to LAX)
It arrived a week late with a Canada Post stamp on it

Yes, it's happened a few time. Last time I heard some British idiots booked a flight online and wound up in Canada. They wondered why they were getting on a small regional airliner to go across the pacific.  

Really annoyingly the press picked up the story and the NSW tourist authority paid for their fares to SYD. It really irked me. I research my travel and I have to pay retail. These idiots....

Highly likely, as it has been outfitted for them at RME.

A few years ago a German tourist also wound up in the small town of SDY (Sidney, Montana, spelled with an "i") by mistake, instead of SYD.

AC serves 2 Sydneys (SYD and YQY), 2 Londons (LHR and YXU), 2 Portlands (PDX and PWM), and until they dropped MAN they also served 2 Manchesters (MAN and MHT).

AC also serves YYT (St. John's, Newfoundland), YSJ (Saint John, New Brunswick) and YXJ (Fort St. John, British Columbia).
