If you had a choice of two specific aircraft, not families, which would you go with? Remember, specific model of aircraft.

Domestic -

Would have to be the 737-700ER. Range, flexibility being the strong points.

International -

I'd go with the 787-9. Not the biggest, but definitely has the range.

I don't think you could run a 'full coverage' airline (regional, short haul & intercontinental) on just two fleet types, so I'll take two examples each with a different business model, based in the UK:

Airline 1; European & Regional Routes:

- DeHavilland Dash8-400
- Airbus A320-200

Airline 2; European Feeder & Intercontinental Routes:

- Airbus A320-200
- Boeing B777-200ER

Preferably hang on for the anticipated A320-NG model.

I can think of three US domestic airlines that rely on either two or one fleet type and they are Spirit, AirTran, and SunCountry.

Frontier (A318, A319)
Hawaiian (B763, B717)
Aloha (B732, B73G)
USA 3000 (A320-212, A320-214) - not sure if these count as different types or not.

I think Sun Country and possibly USA 3000 are the only scheduled mainline airlines in the U.S. to operate only one specific fleet type.

To answer the question, I would use the 737-700ER and the 787-8.

This would also be dependant on where abouts you are operating and what kind of operation you have. But I would choose the 747-800 and 787-800.

For a domestic US carrier that is just starting out and would need to acquire aircraft quickly at a cheap price, I would use the MD-90-30 for the majority of the routes and the 752 for the higher density routes.

How can anyone pick the 787 for their fleet when its not flying yet.  scratchchin  It's call an airline without any revenue coming in.
For my airline; from the choice of aircraft that is in service today
744 and the 763.

737-800 and 767-300. Two planes with good range but not to big, So the 767 could do Transcon like MIA-LAX and the 738 could do PDX-JFK or 767 for long hauls too.
