  Airline call sign - Definition, explanation
Most airlines employ a distinctive and internationally recognised call sign that is normally spoken during airband radio transmissions as a prefix to the flight number.
The country shown alongside an airline's call sign is that wherein most of its aircraft are believed to be registered, which may not always be the same as the country in which the firm is officially incorporated or registered.
There are many other airlines in business whose radio call signs are more obviously derived from the trading name.

The airline’s first flight was made on March 15, 1941 with a single Beech Model 18 NPC-54 aircraft, which started its daily services between Manila (from Nielson Field) and Baguio, later to expand with larger aircraft such as the DC-3 and Vickers Viscount.
Many airlines in the Allied countries were flush from lease contracts to the military, and foresaw a future explosive demand for civil air transport, for both passengers and cargo.

 Airline missteps prompt call for new DOT powers and fines for service breakdowns - USATODAY.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-28)
In the wake of repeated airline service meltdowns recently, Rep. James Oberstar, D-Minn., said in an interview last week that a code of conduct that airlines voluntarily agreed to seven years ago should be updated.
The 1999 voluntary code, for example, required airlines to tell passengers the lowest available fare, notify them promptly of delays and meet their essential needs during long delays on planes.
The airlines agreed to that code after thousands of passengers on Northwest Airlines planes were stuck during a 1999 snowstorm in Detroit, prompting calls for new laws.

Airline fare wars are most often started by the weakest competitor over the weekend.
Remember, when an airline tells you there are no seats available for a particular flight, what they are really telling you is that there are no seats available at the fare you want to pay.
With fewer airlines and growing consolidation among carriers, there is decreasing incentive for the airlines to have such programs.

  Call sign at AllExperts
Call signs in aviation are derived from several different policies, depending on the type of flight operation being conducted, and depending on whether the caller is in an aircraft or at a ground facility.
Amateur radio call signs are in the international series and normally consist of a one- or two-character prefix, a number (which sometimes corresponds to a geographic area within the country), and a 1, 2, or 3 character suffix.
In the Italian call sign, IK1TZO, IK is the prefix, the number component is 1 and corresponds to the Piedmont, Aosta Valley and Liguria regions, and TZO is the suffix.
