Fun airline callsigns?

Recommended Posts

I was looking for fun callsigns that weren't just "southwest" or "air Canada" but more like Cactus or Speedbird. Any more historical or current that come to mind?

This east coast-based US airline had an advertising claim, that was picked up frequently by ATC - not exactly a callsign - what's this airline again (somewhere around KBOS)?!?

Foudn another one (an official, this time), but the airline ceased to exist in 2011:

Robin Hood Aviation - "Sherwood" - an Austrian regional airline operating between Graz (LOWG), Linz (LOWL) and Zurich (LSZH).

Thomas Cook use Kestrel.

China Airlines use Dynasty.

Pan Am used used Clipper.

Hmm..British Airways' Speedbird, Brussels Airlines' Bee-Line, VLM Airlines' Rubens (after the famous painter from Antwerp as well), Air Nippon's Alfa Wing, American Eagle's Eagle Flight and [...]'s Candler come to mind!

I always liked Critter which was used for ValuJet because of it's little mascot they had. Ours was Moku which meant island in Hawaiian or in some other dialects also meant bird so it was fitting.
