This is not a Boeing vs. Airbus thread. This thread is to discuss which airlines intend to go all-Boeing or all-Airbus.

I know that Delta and Continental will likely stick with Boeing as they are now. American also intends on going all-Boeing after the retirement of the A300s. I have heard ANA plans to go all-Boeing in the long term.

As for all-Airbus, I know that US Airways intends on going all-Airbus.

Until there is a replacement for the 757s we won't be an all Airbus fleet. Also there is still the outside chance that we may get the 787 if the A350 falls short of what is advertised.

I do not think B or A will ever build all the ac's airlines are asking (need) for,
There are so many factors involved of choosing the right ac for that route and
market because it does not mean that if it works for LH it will work for BA.

Cheers,

AI may go all Boeing when they get their 777's and 787's....the current (owned) fleet of 744's will probably continue flying and the LCC arm AI Express will have a fleet of 738's....

The A310 fleet is already due for retirement and should be out by 2010...

So, by roughly 2010 or so, AI will be all Boeing...

IC, on the other hand, will probably end up as all Airbus (at least their jet fleet), with a fleet of 320/319/321's.....the ATR's will be the only non Airbus aircraft in their fleet....

same here!! AI is clear about being all Boeing once they retire their A310s. Similarly IC shall be all Airbus once their last remaining B732s manage to reach Mojave.

That's right, El AL is only Boeing partially because of politics (if not only), but it's was never with any MD or other too? (may be I'm wrong?).

Concerning that real politics avionics facts, the only possibility is that the Dassault familly take a part of EADS or Airbus cake (they are full of money actually) and may be the Israelien gouvernement will authorised to buy some Airbus in memory of Marcel Dassault who have done so much to help Israel in the past.

In Mexico, we have the following examples:

ZE: All-Boeing 737 fleet.
6A: All-Boeing fleet.
VW: All-ATR 42-500 fleet.
JR: All-Douglas DC9 fleet.
IJ: All-Airbus A320 fleet.
QA: All-Fokker 100 fleet.

AM: It is moving to an all-Boeing fleet. Although it will keep several MD-80's for the next few years, at some point AM will only operate 737NG's and 777's, with the 787 as a possibility.

MX: It is moving to an all-Airbus fleet. Although it is operating a few 752's and a 763ER at the moment, expect those to be retired in the coming months. MX already has A318's, A319's, A320's and there is speculation that the A321 could be considered for some routes out of CUN. As for the widebodies, a separate thread discusses how MX wants to have one or two A332's in 2006 and place an order for A340's soon too (not sure if it will be A343E's, A345's or A346's, although the A345 makes most sense if MX seriously wants to fly to Asia).

As for the new carriers, GOL México will have an all-Boeing 737NG fleet and Volaris will have an all Airbus A32X fleet.



Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

Are the MD-80s considered Boeings?

As far as I know, CanJet and WestJet both operate all boeing fleets. Also, Sun Country airlines operates all Boeing. Additionally, Ryanair operates an all Boeing fleet.
