How come Continental uses this call sign in Japan? Why not their own?
Only the pilots of Continental Air Micronesia are employed by Continental. Everyone else is Air Micronesia. As EMB said, it's an entirely different operating certificate, hence the "Air Mike" call sign. When the 767 is flying from HNL-GUM-NRT and vice versa, it is also under the "Air Mike" call sign.
No, it's not a wet lease deal... CAL owns the Air Micronesia certificate. CAL chooses to staff the Air Mike certificate with it's own pilots but all of the other employees are specifically Air Mike.Thank you, so it is a wet lease deal then? I was just curious
