APFxxxx is assigned routes from AWExxxx

The route lookup finds AWE routes (US Airways) when no suitable APF route is found.

APF = Amapola Flyg (IATA code HP)

AWE = US Airways (IATA code US)

I can't see why, they have nothing to do with each other.

It's because it APF has an IATA of HP and America West Airlines also has an IATA of HP. America West's ICAO is AWE so VRS thinks they're all part of the same family like BAW, SHT and BA.

It looks like America West Airlines is now defunct, I'll retire the airline and that should break the chain.

OK!

While duplicates seem to be allowed with special limitations, IATA currently only list Amapola under HP, that is why I couldn't find the connection.

(AWE seems to have aquired HP from Hawaiian Pacific way back in time, according to Google.)
