The AOL Phonetic Alphabet

You must have heard your airline ticket booking agent call out your PNR number using words like S for SUGAR, Y for YANKEE, etc. While we were on our way back the YES!+ Huddle we had in Murud, we had sailor Shibani in our car. An interesting discussion about the phonetics sailors use, ensued and Dineshda suggested that we must have an Art of Living list too.

Here it is:
  • A - Awareness
  • B - Belongingness
  • C - Committment
  • D - Devotion
  • E - Enthusiasm
  • F - Freedom
  • G - Guru
  • H - Happiness
  • I - Intention
  • J - Joy
  • K - Knowledge
  • L - Love
  • M - Maya
  • N - Naturalness
  • O - Om
  • P - Peace
  • Q - Quest
  • R - Ravishankar
  • S - SriSri
  • T - Truth
  • U - Upanishad
  • V - Viveka
  • W - Wonder
  • X - X-ray
  • Y - Yoga
  • Z - Zero
In the world of Aviation, there is a different way of learning your ABC's. The Phonetic Alphabet is not only used by the military, but also by Pilots, Air Traffic Controllers, and Customer Service Agents within the Airlines. It is a great way to make sure you are understood (since a B, P, T, and V sound hauntingly similar when spoken), and an appropriate introduction to Aviation Lingo. The letters and their corresponding words for you.

  • A - Alpha
  • B - Bravo
  • C - Charlie
  • D - Delta
  • E - Echo
  • F - Foxtrot
  • G - Golf
  • H - Hotel
  • I - India
  • J - Juliet
  • K - Kilo
  • L - Lima
  • M - Mike
  • N - November
  • O - Oscar
  • P - Papa
  • Q - Quebec
  • R - Romeo
  • S - Sierra
  • T - Tango
  • U - Uniform
  • V - Victor
  • W - Whiskey
  • X - X-ray
  • Y - Yankee
  • Z - Zulu
