Flagship?
« on: April 30, 2005, 04:35:47 PM »
I hate to start a new 'topic' just for this (dorky question), but I'm completely stumped!  I've been listening to the Detroit feed today and they've been using the term "flagship."  What does that mean in aviation lexicon?

Am a newbie (as if that wasn't obvious :roll: ) and would appreciate the info!  Thanks very much,

-Jen

what i dont understand about Pinnacle is that their flight numbers are all over the place in the NW airline flight range scheme. All other regionals have a set range for example say delta has flights 4000-6000  4000-5000 is set for ASA airlines and 5000-6000 is set for Comair. Flagship seems to be all oiver the NW regional flight range. Go Figure

Really?  I'm looking at Comair arrivals into CVG and 98% of them are between 0 and 2000.

actually if you hear comair flight number 450 this is what you do: comair fligts are in the 500o-6000 range comair flight 450 would be preceeded by the number 5 actually making the flight 5450. However there are some flight i have heard also that for example comair flight 1870 would be readin the delta system as 5870. I wonder why also

For any airliner that operates into or out of the US, you can find their callsigns here:

http://www.faa.gov/ATpubs/CNT/3-3.htm

Callsigns can be found under Section 2, titled "Telephony" section, and are further grouped by first letter of the callsign.
