Occasionally the airline operator flight numbers are easy to understand; SA=South African; AI= Air India; LH=Lufthansa yet some are curious. AY=Finnair; LX=Swiss etc. Most are historical TE=Air New Zealand (TEAL);. We are all aware of QF = Qantas BUT what were the 2 letters for Qantas that preceded QF ...? (I guess not even Alan Joyce knows the answer..)
