Which Airline Flies "every" 7_7 Series?

Hi,

I was just watching the UA 777-200 video the other day and I was thinking about all the Boeing planes UA flies and I realised that they operate pretty much every "main 7_7" aicraft.

Boeing 727
Boeing 737
Boeing 747
Boeing 757
Boeing 767
Boeing 777

From what I know, UA never bought the 717 and I'm not sure if they're getting any 787s.

Any other airlines that have something similar?

Thanks

Vio

TWA operated all 7X7 varients except the 737 and 777.

CO and DL operated both 727,737,747,757,767,777 with no 717's TWA was the only legacy airline to fly the 717.

And on the TW note, I would say that AA is the only carrier to have flown each at least at some point in its lifetime: the afore-mentioned 717's obtained from TW, 727s and 747s at one time, and 737s, 757s, 767s, and 777s currently.

BA and partners operated or still operate quite a few (well, at least in their colours), and even quite a selection of sub types - only the 717 missing! And they may well take the 787 in the future?

Must be a contender for one of the top Boeing operators over the years?

I don't know about you guys, but I still have a really hard time of seeing the 717 as a Boeing Aircraft. It always seems much more like a cross-dressing MD95, although I guess Boeing tinkered with a few things.

It's funny that even if you throw the MD11 as a Boeing plane, American and Varig would still be two of the aforementioned list having flown every one of them.



A good landing is one you can walk away from. A great landing is if the aircraft can be flown again.

I will always think of the 717 as a member of the DC-9 family, as are the MD-80 and MD-90. To avoid confusion, I refer to the "legacy" Boeing jetliners as "Washington-built" Boeing jetliners.

As a further clarification, I include the 720 as a variant of the 707. With these caveats, those that have operated every model include the aformentioned American, Continental, United, and Varig. So far, only Continental has ordered the 787 out of these, so they may stand alone in a few years.

Or the 727s...in the Western Pacific, they've been replaced w/ the B738s.

Yes, I would have to say that AA takes the cake so far. I'm almost positive once they have the means, they will order the 787 making them an operator (in the case of the 717, on a TWA LLC certificate) of every 7_7 Boeing plane manufactured.

Nope, American has no MD-88's in its fleet. They never had any. The 300+ aircraft you are talking about are the MD-82/83 Series including the ones acquired from TWA. It is Delta that has MD-88's.
An MD product is no longer considered as a non Boeing aicraft. However you are right, the subject of the topic is about 7*7 Series specifically.

And yes, I do agree that American is the one that has flown all 7*7 Series, if you include former TWA aircraft.
