I Need A NAGA.net Please...acronym Help PLZ!

Mon Sep 26, 2011 12:41 pm

I didn't know exactly where to post this, so I will try here...

NAGA.net = Novice Acronym Guide for Airliners.Net

Sometimes, as a novice (so please understand) but there are some "uncommon" and even very "common" acronyms on A.net that can confuse, or you get to sort of understand but don't know exactly what the acronym stands for.

So I am asking for help, really revealing my ignorance - but wishing to learn. Would some of you kindly illuminate me by listing the most common ones and explaining? Please. (or is there a guide I cannot find?)

Here are some I really don't know the exact meaning of:

TATL

O&D

IMHO

(I actually totally get ETOPS)

Boeing Acronyms http://www.rosboch.net/aviation.htm#BoeingAcronyms
Airbus Acronyms http://www.rosboch.net/aviation.htm#AirbusAcronyms

Quoting VC10er (Thread starter):

The meaning of that acronym has actually changed over time. It used to be Extended-range Twin-engine Operational Performance Standards. But now it think it stands for Extended Operations since it is no longer limited to twins.

IOU ALL!

I think I will start another thread on which airlines names are acronyms! Like VARIG.

When they were a client of mine it was a big no-no to ever write Varig in a letter etc. We had to write VARIG!

Because VARIG is an acronym... Viação Aérea RIo-Grandense

Why not start the thread    though these kinds of topic isn't fun anymore since search engines and wiki is too easy to use... (albeit not always 100% correct)

Just like QANTAS used to be. Now it's just Qantas.

O&D, CASM and RASM took me years to find out.   Too lazy to look it up, I kept on guessing based on context and finally it dawned on me.


I wonder, since a.net has this nifty mouse-over feature of airline and airport codes, whether we could extend the system to some often-used aviation abbreviations? Would make the site much more accessible to newcomers I'm sure.
