Sorry, I try to avoid private jargon but that one slipped through.

Australian aviation law talks about 'regular public transport' -
RPT.  I think it's the equivalent of the US term 'common carrier'.

The FAA talks about 'Part xxx carrier' to define the rules a
carrier is licenced under.  'RPT' applies to the trunk airlines
in Australia.
