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?

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!  cheesy

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?

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!
