Quoting Checo77 (Thread starter): All Boeing: Ryanair, Copa Airlines, Southwest Airlines, American Airlines (not 100% sure though)
Don't forget Alaska, the hometown airline.
American is currently all-Boeing if you count the MD-80 as a Boeing airplane, but unfortunately has those A32x on order. AS, WS and FL are also all Boeing. HA used to be all Boeing, but no-longer unfortunately.

Quoting Bluebird191 (Reply 12): South African appear to be transitioning to an all Airbus fleet
That may be so, but at the moment they have a mix. But Mango, and Comair (who operate both Kulula and BA franchise) are both all Boeing, save 1x ATR in BA colours. 1Time are an all MD airline (so all Boeing if you count that).
Whilst they lasted, Velvet Sky were all-Boeing - they only had one plane, a 733.
Not really a comparison though is it considering the A340 line has closed, you might as well have asked how many A310s are being built compared to the 777. A pro Airbus person could ask how many 757s are being built compared to A321s or how many B744s were delivered last year compared to A380s
Simple fact is that Boeing insn't and probrably never will be the dominant global airliner builder again. Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier, Embraer, ATR etc are all in competition and there are airlines out there that will never find just one manufacturer whose range suits all of thier requirements so will look to other builders.
Also consider that Boeings are not 100% made in America, they're assembled there but parts come from suppliers all over the world. No different at Airbus, lots of A32X series flying with American made engines for instance, parts from all over the world with final assembly in Tolouse or Hamburg.
The airliner business is global now, being nationalistic about your "American" aeroplanes and openly showing hostility towards Airbus is illogical.
BTW, this isn't an anti Boeing rant. I'm an aviation enthusiast first and foremost and "flag wave" for neither one side or the other. If Vickers or DeHavilland were still in business I might feel different
