More that probably this topic has been already discussed but... Would somebody let me know how many 777/747 BA operates? I believe all 777s are 772s and the 747s are 744s.

Has BA got the largest widebody fleet?

No, but their widebody fleet is not insignificant.. As of now they have 131 widebody aircraft (57 744s, 43 772s, 21 763ERs).

Quoting ARGinLON (Thread starter):

All 747s at BA have been -400s for a few years now. They have 57 of the type.

All 777s are 777-200 models. Most are -200ER, with a handful of -200A models. Power for the 772's is mixed GE90 and RR Trent 800 (Trent 800 models are the longest ranged models at BA).

3 of their 772s are A models, 24 are lower gross weight 772ER models (listed at BA as 772IGW), 16 are high gross weight 772ERs. That makes a total of 43 777 aircraft. The 772As and 772IGWs are GE90 powered with the 772ERs being RR Trent 800 powered

Thank you. That's very impressive. 57 744s.... I know AF is more or less on those numbers.
If is not the largest widebody operator...Who is it? an Asian carrier?

I think AF has 22 747-400, 2 747-300, 30 747-200 and 18 747-100 totaling 72. Many of those are cargo only.
777's I think they have 11 773 and 25 772

I think something like this was raised before: JAL do have a mix of 747-100/200/300 AND 400, but still have more 744's than BA. I will try and find out how many they do have.

Sorry, I've just counted about 42 or 43 744's for JAL. BA does have the most 744's!!!

I am very surprised to see AA and DAL do not have any B747. I would love to see a B747 in the AA colours.

Quantity of flights rather than quantity of seats.

AF is no where close to BA for 747s

Quoting ARGinLON (Reply 7):
30 747-200 and 18 747-100

Since when does AF have 741s anymore? 30 742s? I don't think so. AF has 36 total 747s. 13 742s, 9 743s and 19 744s

Quoting ChiGB1973 (Reply 12):

Actually, it is something more specific to AA. AA has many routes that would justify a 747, but Bob Crandall once stated he would rather turn people away from a 763 (no 772 then) than fly out a 747 half full. DL's reasoning is the fact that their strength for a long time was their domestic flights, particularly channeling through ATL and they rely on grabbing some O&D from ATL and JFK, meaning 767s do them well

No. Total = 33, with only 21 of them carrying pax (still quite a lot IMO!!!)
200s = 11 (8 of them are cargos)
300s = 2
400s = 20 (4 of them are cargos, the newest 744ERF, of which AF was the launch customer)

My very first flight was on a AA 747 LAX-JFK in 1971.

To show how security has changed since then, while we were waiting for the flight to board, my father (who was seeing me off) managed to get an AA CSR to let him take a tour of the aircraft before the flight was open for general boarding.

Ah, the good old days.....

Really? I wonder if Airbus knows that Boeing stepped up certification of the 772LR and SQ already picked up 5 of them to replace the A345s they just got 2 years ago or so.
