Any airline, The thing is how do you measure the size of an airline? For example you can have an airline with more, but smaller aircraft therefore it may seem it's a bigger company but have less seats on sale per day.
I would like to know airlines such as BA, LH, AZ, SK,AA,CO etc. and also major LCC. It's just curiosity.
These are my principles but if you don't like them I have others

Quoting Bullpitt (Reply 2): The thing is how do you measure the size of an airline?
The usual standard to measure the sizes of airlines is RPM's or RPK's which measure the revenue passenger miles or kilometers. This takes into account the number of passengers and the distance flown. The larger the aircraft the greater the numbers. A good source of these numbers is Air Transport World.
