Who Operates The Biggest 757 Fleet Right Now?

Hello all... I did a search but there is only old and very unreliable information about this out there....can you tell me who is right now the biggest operator of Boeing 757's ? And, if you know, for how long this type will be active with each operator ?

( From the dozens of threads here re AA I guess they are among the top, but only for a short time with the arrival of new planes ?? )

Thanks in advance.

Currently, the largest operator is DL, with 167 757s in the fleet. AA with 102 757s is actually third, behind UA who has 154 757s in its fleet. Even if the US/AA merger gets approved, AA will still be third with 126 757s.

Quoting Gonzalo (Thread starter):

DL is the largest with around 167
UA comes in second with 154
AA is in 3rd with 102 (AA+US they have a total of 126)

Both DL and UA are starting to replace their fleets with 737-900ERs and AA is replacing theirs with the A321-200. I'm not sure when they plan on phasing out the last 757 but some of them are actually fairly new so there is no real rush.

According to airfleets.net DL has the most while AA is 3rd with 102. The active 757 fleet will quickly start shrinking in the next few years since all three of the big airlines have ordered partial replacements for the 757's.

Note that at one point AA was once the largest 757 operator until it unloaded the ex-TWA 757s, most of which were picked up by DL. Then when the DL/NW and UA/CO mergers occurred, AA fell to third largest.

So, considering UA/CO and AA/US will be progressively phasing out the 757's, can we expect the biggest operator in the future will be among some of the non-pax operators ( FedEx/UPS/DHL ) ?

Now what is interesting is asking ourselves what is or was the largest NON US operator of the type, I think (and I'm even sure) it was BA. At one point, during the 90s, they had over 30 757s (if not as many as 40) some of which were used on Shuttle flights within the UK. 30 sounds like nothing, but it is not nothing if you exclude US operators and compare with operators from the rest of the world.
Not only BA was always the largest non US operator of the type, it was also one of the two launch customers (with Eastern) of the 757.

Interesting also is that around 50 airlines are still operating B 757, most apart of the American airlines just a few.
there are still about 860 of 1049 build in use.

If we take away the 5 biggest airlines using the B 757 for passenger traffic, all in the USA, together 446 frames, that still leaves about 415 in use all over the world.

And all 55 B 757-300 build are in use.

Why didn't it catch on with Chinese or other Asian carriers? I recall when VARIG had 2, yet it seemed like a perfect ac for South America (to me) vs flying an MD-11 from Manaus to Rio, or Sao Paulo to Chile?

SQ ordered some. But as we discussed in relation to the Chinese in another thread, the Chinese market really didn't open to outsiders until only very recently. When the 757 was in its order book heyday, China was still rather undeveloped economically. Nixon only landed in China in 1972, not really that long ago.

SQ had 4. They were PW powered. At that time (late 80s), SQ was flying mostly the A310 on flights within South East Asia.

Wasn't the very last 757 built delivered to a Chinese airline in 2005?

And in the case of the 757, the tendency of the type to climb like a rocket !!!   

I'm surprised by the high number of active frames, I thought ( for whatever reason that I can not explain ) the active 757's around the world were less than a half of the actual number.... This time being wrong is so nice !!

   For FedEx is gaining 752s while everyone else will be retiring theirs. Who will be the largest all depends on the UPS/FedEx buying schedule.

Quoting United1 (Reply 3):
Both DL and UA are starting to replace their fleets with 737-900ERs and AA is replacing theirs with the A321-200.

Isn't US already the largest operator of the A321? I suspect US/AA will quickly gain that title if US doesn't have it already. Either way, the number of 752s in passenger service will drop quickly over the next 5 years.

The last ER models will be hard to replace for many airlines. The neo and max still wont come close enough on hot and high, long and thin.

How will these airlines do as there will come a day when the metal is just too old and worn. To abuse a small WB is an expensive way to replace these planes?!

So what is the average age of the 757 fleet of AA, UA and DL? They must be getting older than 20 years now I think.

Though at Schiphol, we only see them a few times a day, those take offs are still impressive.

Condor and United operates 75T (thats the Boeing 757-300 with Winglets), Delta is the only operator of the Boeing 757-300 without Winglets (the 753).

At one point they had 56 in the fleet. I flew them quite often and BA used them v flexibly and I certainly had them on flights ranging from short hops from LHR-MAN to longer ones to Athens and Istanbul. They were also used I believe on the GLA-JFK routes too. Now all that are left are the ORY-EWR flights of OpenSkies.

A full list can be found at:

http://www.planespotters.net/Product...&type=757&fleet=4766&fleetStatus=5

Interesting to see that many of them found their way to DHL and FedEX so hopefully the old girls are still having a happy life on your side of the pond.

Bilateral restrictions in Asia often included frequency restrictions which made widebodies more economic on many routes. And if one carrier operated widebodies, competitors didn't have much choice but to match.

More than 40. BA took delivery of 50 757s from Boeing. I think all were in service simultaneously before they began disposing of them. Most are now freighters.
