Default 9e, 6b, 7x.........?

So I have been a member here for a long time and normally just do a lot of reading. All the time I see a code like 9E rather than the airline name. Where do these codes come from and what do they mean? Can a send in for a magic decoder ring somewhere?

Thanks, I have wondered where those codes come from for awhile. Mods feel free to delete this post at will.
