I would have to say that the airline with the best variety of a/c would be United. Whenever I have flown UA in the past I have always gotten a great selection of different a/c to choose from. According to their web site they currently fly 17 different types of a/c, from Boeing to airbus to canadair, dornier, and beechcraft, they seem to have them all.
I know that Delta also has a pretty big fleet of a/c but not much variety. They seemed to neglect Europe and stick with the north american a/c companies like Boeing, canadair, and McDonnell Douglas. There is also American, or should I call them MD-80 Airlines. I have flown American 3 times and never gotten anything but an MD-80. Now who here's favorite plane is the MD-80............anyone..................anyone...............yeah me either!Southwest......well, enough said. And finally Continental. I think that they prefer Boeing which is kind of sad to see. I'm glad they support the US economy but not much fun for me and other freq. flyers. Can you think of any other airlines?
ask not what your pilot can do for you, ask what you can do for your pilot

AeroMexico is also an AEROMD80 operator, almost the half of the company fleet is composed of MD-82/83/87/88, but they have a nice variety of a/c, they operate the Saab 340-B, they will start operating the Embraer E145, they are retiring their DC-9-30's, they operate MD-87's, Boeing 737-700W's
, MD-82, MD-83, MD-88, Boeing 757-200's, 767-200's, and 767-300's.
There are many options to choose from...
I almost forget, they operate the 727-200F (AEROMEXPRESS)

The 5 A320s delivered last October and November, are replacing the 3 735s (1 735 is with subsidery Air Sinai). The 735s (delivered in 91/92) are being mainly used on domestic flights, and they might all be transferred to Air Sinai eventually.
In the long term Egyptair is considering purchasing Embraer or Bombardier regional jets to take-over the domestic route network and boost frequency (they leased 6 ATR-42s last year to see the feasibilty of such a plan and it proved very successfull).
As of yet, there are no replacements for the 743s, but their have been reports that the airline will be re-ordering 2 A340-600s (plus 2 on options)

I like BA's fleet.
AA is also good too, they have to Fokker 100 and MD80, as well as almost all versions of Boeing a/c (meaning 738, 752, 762/3, 772) besides the 744. They also have the A300, and used to have the MD-11, which I loved seeing in AA's colors, too bad they got rid of those, I always wanted to fly on an MD-11 somewhere, and as time goes on my chances are getting slimmer.
