ARTCC flight designations


#1

I monitor many radio transmissions thru the “New York”, “Washington”, & “Cleveland” ARTCC centers. I hear many flight identified as “CACTUS ####” or something that sounds similar to that. What airline are they referring to?


#2

US air. they Bought America West and kept the AW callsign


#3

Other way around. :slight_smile: America West bought US Airways, kept the US Airways name, and the America West callsign and ICAO code.
