Also, does anyone know why N492FE is named "Two Bears"?
|Quoting Banco (Reply 4):|
My old airline had one that constantly went wrong and whose registration finished with PS. It was known as Piece of Shit across the company. Does that count?
|Quoting Klwright69 (Thread starter):|
I remember when the original PA named all their 747's. For example there was the "Maiden of the Seas." I found the concept rather clever. Has any other carrier done this?

Don't they still have one named "The Bernie Epple"?

Virgina America has "Air Colbert / N621VA" and "California Dreaming / N622VA"
Why is it that Virgin America has only named 2 out of all their other aircraft?

LH has had a consistent policy of naming its aircraft after German places.

|Quoting ZuluLima (Reply 7):|
There's also Frontier, who names the animals on the tails. I think those are also the names of the planes themselves, but no names appear on the fuselage. Frontier's seem to be the least serious; some are downright corny. Examples: Mustang "Sally" or Rabbit "Stu".

WN COULD be considered in this thread, but not quite. Not all of WNs ships are named, just a good majority (Or, have some kind of noselogo..).
|Quoting Andz (Reply 15):|
SAA had an A-300 regustered ZS-SDD that seemed to have more problems than the other 300s in the fleet, which earned it the name "Double Disaster". My wife operated a flight on it once and when approaching JNB there were no green lights indictaing locked landing gear. A few circuits and a fly by the tower gave the crew the assurance the gear was down and they landed without incident. SDD is now in the ocean as an artificial reef
|Quoting ZuluLima (Reply 27):|
WN has around 500 planes and maybe 20-25 are special.
|Quoting Lrdc9 (Reply 38):|
you have t consider the a/c with nose stickers. Also, closer 300 than 500.
