Callsign Question "Giant"

Wed Nov 29, 2006 2:07 am

Howdy Folks.

I'm listening to JFK tower on liveatc.net and just came across a callsign "Giant8360 heavy". I was searching through the web but couldn't find anything. Does anybody know what Airline this is assigned to? Also, Does anybody have a link to a complete list of callsigns?

TIA

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe "Giant" is Atlas Air Cargo

You get two possibilities there. 5Y or G4. I would go for the former.

Cheers.

It was definitely Atlas Air Cargo and it was definitely a B744F.

Yeah has to be Atlas Air Cargo since Allegiant only operates MD83s and MD87s.

It is Atlas Air Cargo but in this case is is not a 747-400F as you stated, GTI8360 is a flight that operates in the high season this route: MIA-UIO-GYE-JFK-AMS and it is not a 400 series but actually a 200F series:
