Thanks for your answers  Smile. 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?

These airlines lease their aircrafts from Ansett and therefore it is the lessor company which orders the machines to Boeing !

For example,Ansett orders to Boeing one 737 for its own but on the livery of X airline !

I hope it is the right answer !!!

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!
