Tiger airlines which started flying in Australia a few months ago has the call sign

"Go Cat"

Eg "Go Cat" 435 cleared to land Rwy 34 (melbourne)

Sounds like a Pet food, here Puss Puss Puss Puss.........................
Any other unusual call signs?

And from "The Continent":
Rubens -> VLM

RAF Royal Flight aircraft use the callsigns Kitty 1, Kitty 2, etc (Kitty Hawk if the Monarch is on board).  Could be a bit of a cat fight if they cross paths with Go Cat!  :lol:

I find this kinda funny, since KittyHawk is the same callsign for KittyHawk Air Cargo, based in Los Angeles!

Senario,

Go Cat 435, follow kitty 1 on short final for rwy 34, kitty 2, claw your way back to the outer marker, follow the feline Go cat 435 who is number 2 for 34.

do these airlines have toilets or "Kitty litter?

Would that be a CAT III approach? :roll:

Just to add to all this the latest airline to announce plans for Aussie domestic flights is Lion Air Australia - a joint venture between Lion Air of Indonesia and a small Australian airline SkyAir World (current fleet one ERJ-170) -  see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lion_Air_Australia and http://www.jaunted.com/story/2008/1/28/3235/00084/travel/Will+Lion+Air+Roar+Into+Australia%3F

The fur may fly!
