Hi all

Something interesting just made me wonder

Kuwait airways operates a daily flight KWI BOM KWI as KU 301/302

These are operated by A320/ A310/A300/A340/b777 on different days of the week

That Infact is the entire fleet of the airline with regards to aircraft types
Is this unique

Are there any other routes where the whole fleet is operated?

Cheers
Dr pai

I know this is not what you are exactly looking for, but technically ...

FR operates its 'entire fleet' to every airport they fly, i.e., B737-800 ...
Same for W6 and A320 ...

It may be the case with some other LCC's ...

CX flies anything and everything into TPE. Over the years, I've flown the A333, A343, A346, 744, 772, 773, and 77W between TPE and HKG.

Additionally, CX's subsidiary Dragon Air (KA) flies its A320 and A333 between TPE and HKG as well.

I'm pretty sure both CI and BR also fly at least all their wide-body types between those two airports (CI may use the 738 as well, I don't know, but I rather doubt it).

Might i also add that TG flies everything at their disposal BKK HKG BKK especially TG600/601 which is currently an A380

I have travelled on A300/A330-300 /772/773/77W/A345/A346/A380/747-400

Only exception is the 737-400 but with them being phased put i guess thats pretty much the whole fleet.

However the topic is wether any airline uses their entire fleet to one destination under a single flight number like KU does ?

Yes CX does that all the time and it is restricted to regional flights only to selected ports only! For instance, CX739 (HKG-SIN) will turn around as CX734 (SIN-HKG) and it has used every single aircraft type in CX's fleet (A330, A343, A346, 744, 772, 773, 77W) and the aircraft type keeps changing every single day!

CI has 737-800s on the route sometimes. BR's entire fleet comes to HKG including their MD90s and A321.

Its worth noting that many Asian destinations receive the entire CX passenger fleet. Places like BKK, CEB, NRT, SIN etc...most of the larger destinations in the network.

TG does not regularly swap aircraft types on a certain flight though. The A300 has not been here for a long time for example and as far as I know, no TG 777-300ER has ever visited HKG although I stand to be corrected.

We were originally booked on TG600 and the 747-400 had some problems with the engines and was swapped for a brand new 777-300er that day so was lucky to get on that
when we entered it was like we were travelling in Jet Airways as the interiors looked familiar
it was later that i understood that TG had taken over some aircraft from 9W and hence the similarity.
so yes i have travelled into HKG on a 77W

Icelandair operates 753s to BOS, JFK and occasionally YYZ in N-America and in Europe it operates on a regular basis to LHR and CPH, sometimes to FRA, AMS and ARN, occasionally OSL and very rarely CDG and MAN. Obviously all those airports get 752s also, so those would qualify.

That depends if we're defining "fleet" by family or by model.

As Southwest operates an all-737 fleet, they would meet the criteria on that basis.

But if we define it by model, then an airport would have to see service with the 737-300, the 737-500, the 737-700 and the 737-800.

Not exactly...unless the A345 has been flown there before?

In fact the limited ports which the A345 has called at (LAX, EWR, CGK) renders all destinations invalid for SQ in this discussion. LAX comes closest...772ER, 773ER, 744, A380, A345...but I doubt they have ever sent their 772, 773 or A330s there.

CGK might be a possibility, but no A380s and I doubt any of the ERs went there?

however i should have mentioned its not about airlines and their hubs/home bases

And also in case of lccs its obvious they would fly their whole fleet to a certain airpost as most of them bar some have only one aircraft type

also in case of hubs its like saying AI operates its whole fleet ex DEL but thats not the thread its for eg does AI operate its fleet from said hub /base to any airport with its entire fleet serving that destination?

I believe Allegiant operates their entire fleet into LAS.

Air Wisconsin operates their entire fleet into every airport they serve, as does Go Jet.

Of the big three, I believe the only two airports that see every Delta type are DTW and ATL, but I could be wrong on that. At AA, I believe its DFW and LAX, since the MD 80's don't visit MIA, and I think that ORD sees every AA type now as well.
UA, now that the 747's are an SFO based plane....the only hubs that will see every UA type will be SFO and LAX (I could be wrong since I can't remember if LAX sees 777 service at all)

Tunisair fly A300/319/320 B735/6 to ORY, MRS, LYS, FCO, BRU, IST, TIP...

It's common, but the topic is regarding destinations and not home bases or hubs

Quoting QatarA340 (Reply 23):
Qatar airways operates all types to Dubai and Bahrain.

Including the A319's?

Quoting LX138 (Reply 32):
RJ (bar express ops)

They don't have such thing as 'express ops' but I assume you mean the Embraers? LHR also don't get the A313 (they still have one for pax flying) and A342.

Quoting LX138 (Reply 32):
and lately TK - seem to send just about everything over the last month
Quoting TK1244 (Reply 42):
We can see the whole fleet of TK at the bigger European destinations (LHR, AMS, CDG, DUS, etc)

Not correct, TK still has 3 B734's and they never visit the mentioned cities.   Also the 4 B73W's (the other 4 are flying with Anadolujet) are very rare.

UA, now that the 747's are an SFO based plane....the only hubs that will see every UA type will be SFO and LAX (I could be wrong since I can't remember if LAX sees 777 service at all)

Actually I might stand corrected on this. Is any hub other than IAH seeing the 787 at the moment? If not...then no UA station sees every type.

MCO sees A319, A320, A321, A332, B734, B757, B767. They see all mainline aircraft except the A333 and E90. I believe MCO is the spoke location in the US that sees a A330 on a regular basis.

On which routes does US fly their widebodies into MCO? I know at one point DL flew 763s from ATL to MCO. I didn't realize US apparently does this...

Currently US flies the following widebody routes to MCO:

Flight 801, CLT-MCO, A332
Flight 1020, PHL-MCO, B767
Flight 735, PHL-MCO, B767

On Saturdays, CLT-MCO sees an additional 767 operating as flight 1719.

US has been operating B767s on MCO-CLT/PHL for years now. They previously also operated PIT-MCO on an B767. This is the first year MCO has seen regularly scheduled A330 aircraft on US.

With the exception of the winter holiday, and certain Saturdays, DL no longer flies widebody aircraft into MCO. Sad, because MCO used to see MD11s, 764s, 763s, etc.. US is the only US airline (I believe) who still flies regularly scheduled widebodies to MCO.

I think PAL is 1x A319, plenty of A320 and the positioning A330 MNL-CEB for the NRT flight at Cebu. Seems to have changed dramatically since they took over 2P MNL-CEB also.

Back in April, 2000, I went to Orlando with my high school's marching band, and we flew out of PIT with the option of flying US or DL. Many of my friends flew on a couple of DL flights bound for ATL, which connected to a 767 to MCO. I, unfortunately, had to settle for a non-stop 737-400 doing a YUL-PIT-MCO routing. My return flight, US flight 5, was on a 757 tho. That was doing a MCO-PIT-LAX routing...

Quoting FWAERJ (Reply 34):
23 fleet types in all (24 when the DC-9s are replaced by the 717s and the 739ERs start arriving).

Actually, for a short time it will be [i2]5 types[/i], as the 738ER will enter service before the D95 is phased out. That is of course assuming the D95s will not be based at DTW exclusively during the final months, as that's a strong possibility.

Thai too flies their entire fleet to BOM at times.
Ive seen TG 744,A333,773,77W, even A340-600!
So all their wide bodies which are operational now have visited BOM

Sorry but i disagree, and trust me a TG Employee would surely know     

i have logged all TG flights for last twelve years now and the A340-600 and the A340-500 have never come to BOM!

the 77w has also never come except when 9W leased them to TG and they may have been in BOM for a while

cheers

I thought the last 734s were already retired last month.

The TG 737-400 is NOT flying into Changi and not into HKG. Let s be more correct in answering the question. The threadstarter was aksing about the entire fleet, not only the widebody fleet.

Have fun with that, then.

The 77W is part of the AA fleet now, which LAX has yet to see.

LAX-LHR will see the 77W starting this summer.

Thank you for bringing that up , thats exactly what i had asked?

PR fleet into HKG
MEA into various airports
QR to BAH/DXB
TG into SIN
TG into HKG
PR into CBE and DVO
