Anybody know if there's a convention to the naming of international air routes, e.g. G595,B580,R465,UA559,UB503,AR3 - namely what does the G/B/UA, etc... prefix stand for?

Also if anyone could point me to literature (online or print) about international flight planning and typical procedures (i.e. dealing with oceanic centers/FIR's) it would be much appreciated.

Son, are you speaking English?

Talk about esoterica...

Try this question on Professional Pilots Rumor Network . Go to Tech Log; not the main rumor board because the moderator will close it and then move it for you anyway.

Good luck.
