    ATC (audio) prefix the callsign/flighID with unique indicator.

    This may help:

    So for a British Airways flight you may have:

    BA BAW British Airways Plc (United Kingdom) Speedbird
    BA SHT British Airways Shuttle (United Kingdom) Shuttle

    FR24 shows both the IATA and ICAO flight ID. Listen out for a "Speedbrid" prefix for the ICAO ID.

    For example:

    BA2715 /BAW49MG should be "Speedbird Niner Four Mike Golf"
