Sunstate (QLD, Australia) Radio Callsigns

Wed Jun 21, 2006 7:08 am

G'day All,

I can't remember for the life of me if I have posted this before or not, and I can't find it anywhere...

Does anyone have any idea why QantasLink/Sunstate (Queensland, Australia based regional subsidiary of Qantas) is using callsigns such as "Sunstate 567D" for their Q400 flights instead of "Sunstate 2567" which is the actual flight number??? The initial rumour was that it had something to do with the phase-in of the aircraft, however they have now been in service for a number of months and are still using these unusual callsigns. Any ideas at all...??

Cheers...  highfive 
Virgin Blue - what colour's RED????
