Thanks for your answers . However, when I looked in the database, a lot of airline uses -3A a/c, Istanbul Airlines, Brittania Airways, Air Rose, Ethiopian Airlines, Sobelair, Royal Brunei and America West, just to name a few.
How come this code is spread to so many airlines? Did Ansett sell their a/c one by one?
Just like birdwatching - without having to be so damned quiet!

The code reffers to the airline who ordered the plane initially.Alitialia ordered some 744s ,but didnt take delievery of them.They went to Virgin but still have Alitalis code even without Alitalia flying them once!
