    So I was flying LGA-BOS today and it reminded me to ask, what are the letters after the AC on the safety card. I know they relate to the config, but do they actually mean anything. Today I had A319 (OW). Just curious. Thanks.

    OW means Over Water.

    A319 (EOW) would be Airbus A319 Extended Over Water which means the aircraft is equipped with life rafts and life jackets but is still not ETOPS(Extended Twin engine OPerationS) rated . Or as we say Engines Turn Or Passengers Swim.

    Ah thanks. I saw an SR figuring short range on one. The CRJs are more cryptic like CRJ900 XY

    I believe the CRJs have a notation for which DL Connection carrier is operating the flight. OO=SkyWest, OH=ComAir, etc.
