What are some of the smaller airlines that have/had widebody service?

What is a small airline? Is an airline with upward of 50 aircraft really small?

TN ( Air Tahiti Nui) has between 4-5 aircraft all A340s. When VS ( Virgin Atlantic) started operations they had a single aircraft, a 747-200. SB ( Air Calin), the national airline of Nouvelle Calédonie has a fleet of 3 aircraft, 2 of which are widebodies.

FJ have 2 747s and 4 737s plus some turbo props if they are all under the 1 brand. They had a 763 until recently aswell, and will take 3 A330s to replace the 744s next year.

A bunch of cargo airlines have small fleets of large ac, such as Cargolux which has 747-400 and 747-8
Corsairfly operates the 747-400. I think its the configuation with the most pax of any airline operation this plane

TS has had an all-widebody fleet for a few years now, a mix of A310s and A330s.

First Air operates a single 767-200F, with a mixed fleet of narrowbodies as well.

ATA flew the L-1011 throughout much of its history, and also flew the DC-10 prior to 1986 and again for a brief period until ceasing operations.

Also, HA has a mostly widebody fleet of 763s and A332s, with the A358 on order.

Here is your winner:

Israir operated B763 followed by A332 on TLV-JFK flights from 2004 to 2008. At the time it had just 2 more jets (752s and A320s since 2007) and 4 more ATR 42s.

At the time Wardair was bought by Canadi>n, it was flying 3 B747-100s, 3 DC-10-30s, and 12 A310-300s. Retired 10 years before the purchase were 2 additional B747-200s, and 3 A300s. Since the retirement of the B707s in the 1970s, Wardair was an all wide-body airline.

I can think of some operating only widebody aircraft

UK International Airlines - 762
Scoot - 772
HiFly - 313, 332, 333, 343, 345
Audeli Air - 343 (excluding the private legacy)

Technically you could also count the 'Asia' variants of major airlines like KL, SR etc...

*Air Florida had a DC-10 or two back in the 80's operating alongside their modest fleet of 737's.

*Northeastern International operated a pair of A-300's alongside a few 727's and DC-8's during their short existence.

*Didn't Aloha have a DC-10 at some point?

Another very small (and very short-lived) widebody-only carrier was Swiss World Airways. They operated a single 762ER on one route (GVA-EWR). They lasted less than 6 months in 1998.

It was an operation they called Aloha Pacific and tried to compete with Continental's services to Guam and Taipei.
