It will be First Choice (probably G-OOAL); the tracker's database has not yet been updated to reflect the new code for them.

ah thats what I was thinking since I saw Stratford Airways on the flight tracker once arriving at FLL. First Choice flies some charters that stop at FLL every year with their 757s.

FCA is First Choice Airways.

Some US listings still list FCA as Stratford Airways as they used the FCA code years ago before they went out of business.

First Choice Airways have been using the FCA code since their name change on 13 January 2004. All flights have been operating as FCA for operational/ATC purposes since then.

The AMM code has remained in use on tickets and on airport displays as some passengers had already been issued with AMM tickets before the decision to change the name to First Choice Airways.

As of 00:01 today, all airport displays/tickets will now show the correct FCA code.

Excel Airways' code is XLA. I have no idea why Excel was mentioned in relation to FCA!
