I do not have access to an up-to-date fleet guide - so I was wondering if somebody could help me identify who are the top five carriers that operate the most of the following *passenger* models worldwide. For purposes of this question, I am looking for all variants (no need to split B737-700s and -800s for example):

Boeing 737
Boeing 747
Boeing 757
Boeing 767
Boeing 777

Airbus A319
Airbus A320
Airbus A321
Airbus A330
Airbus A340

Embraer E170/E190

Or - if somebody could tell me where I could find this information easily - that will work too!

Thanks.

I believe the new UAL will operate the most 757s with 159 (97 PMUA 752 + 41 PMCO 752 + 21 PMCO 753). Prior to new UA I think DAL is the largest 757 operator.

As for top 5 I think it would be: UA,DL,AA,Iceland,UPS

747 - CX should be on to top 5 with 46 (pax and cargo together) with 10x 748F on order.

Hong Kong is not China. Not better or worse, just different.

The 757 I would think would go something like DL, UA, AA, FX, 5X. Just top 5, not in proper order

Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing! It's a bonus if you can fly the plane again!!

If I am not wrong, Air France should be the top operator of the A32X family. I am sorry as I don't know the top operator of each specific type.

American used to have the most 757s before the NW/DL and UA/CO mergers. Delta has always been the largest operator of 767s.

E170/190; 73 Republic / 60 Air Canada/ 56 Shuttle America/ 45 JetBlue / 36 Compass

Both Republic and Shuttle America are owned by Republic Airways Holdings, and while the aircraft operate on different certificates, they are the same crew seniority list, etc... so they should count as the same company...

I wouldn't count them, they only have 14 E195's, with 35 E175's on order.

Edit: I'm talking about Flybe, sorry I forgot to quote.
