Geez, and I thought we were talking about Acapulco, ACA Iata code. I was actually wondering who would
be flying a B777 down there.
|Quoting FutureFO (Reply 10):|
So can we put AC vs. ACA in the thread title. ACA does not exist anymore.
|Quoting RobK (Reply 11):|
ACA is the official 3-letter identifier for Air Canada, so there is no good reason to change it to a 2-letter one, unless of course you are one of the minority of people that can't be bothered educating yourself with the 3-letter airline codes.
|Quoting Olympus69 (Reply 12):|
You, as a 3-year A.net member should have educated yourself to use the 2-letter airline codes by now.
|Quoting Olympus69 (Reply 12):|
The only codes recognised by A.net mouse over are 2-letter codes for airlines and 3-letter airport codes.
|Quoting DLPMMM (Reply 4):|
I was wondering why Atlantic Coast Airlines (ACA) (a Delta Connection Carrier) would be buying a widebody aircraft.
|Quoting AC_B777 (Reply 21):|
DAL, AMR, UAL

Quoting Viscount724 (Reply 14):
"Only" people directly involved in technical issues like ATC or operations have much familiarity with the ICAO 3-letter airline and 4-letter airport codes.
Which I think you'll find, considering that this is an aviation site, is one hell of a lot of people !

I've seen the 77W listed for AC870 YUL-CDG in early september... I may well fly on it !
|Quoting RobK (Reply 13):|
Additionally, as the database editor yourself, wouldn't ones time be better spent adding the ICAO codes to the "mouse over" facility, rather than spending that time reprimanding the forum members?
|Quoting Olympus69 (Reply 27):
I agree. It annoys me sometimes when mousing over gives no result. Perhaps the major changes coming up in Airliners.net will mean that more time will become available for making improvements to features of this kind.. Incidentally, I am only involved with corrections to the photo database in a very minor way.
|Quoting RobK (Reply 28):|
Actually, thinking about it more logically, it would probably cause more confusion than solve as with the present system, mousing-over ACA should show up Acapulco airport, so what would happen if 3-letter airline codes were added? It wouldn't know whether to show Acapulco or Air Canada !!
