Boy, that clears up a mystery for me. That callsign has been getting a lot of use around Dulles lately.

They also codeshare with US. They've picked up quite a bit of business from UA since ACA decided to try their own thing. The operate J-41s, EMB145s and still have one ATR-42 and one ATR-72 in American Connection colors.

Jetlink is Continental ExpressJet...Eagleflight is American Eagle, and if I am not mistaken, the Continental Connection flights use their operator's callsigns (Cape Air/Commutair/Gulfstream/Skywest, not sure what their callsigns are)

There's also a very extensive list with the FAA Contractions Manual, which also lists the airline's 3-letter code in addition to radio callsign. You can look in either encode or decode lists... It also has lots of other codes...
