Quoting DLCnxgptjax (Reply 2): According to delta's website they have a total of 121 757's. Although I'm sure that may have changed since bankruptcy.
Delta still has 121 757's, including all variants. So if AA really does have 142, then AA would be tops. Otherwise, I would suggest DL would be. I doubt UA would have many, as they seem to prefer to mix their 75's with 320's.

AA is expected to drop leases on the TW 757s when their leases are up - I believe starting next year. It remains to be seen what will happen to them. It's conceivable that DL could acquire them because they are ETOPS qualified while DL's are not. I believe DL maintains AA's PW engines on their 757s while AA maintains DL's RR engines on DL's 777s.

Quoting Lazyshaun (Reply 1): Largest 744 is BA with 57, I think JAL came a close second, with 77(?) 747's in total, don't know how many -400's.
I think AA have the largest with a rather small fleet of just 142
You lost me here. Are you talking about the 744s or about the 757 fleet regarding AA? And, if they had the largest fleet with 142 aircraft, how would that be a rather small one when u just said that it had the largest...

In order of fleet size on the 757s...
American has 124 RR-powered 757-223s & no more than 17 PW-powered 757-231s, from the TWA fleet. These TW planes are all leased & will be gone in the next 18 months.
Delta has 121 PW-powered 757s, 116 of them DL's own -232s & 5 other 2nd tier -200s.
United has 97 PW-powered 757-222s.
These are the top 3 largest 757 users in terms of fleet size. Regards.

Quoting SESGDL (Reply 4): AA has 143 757-200s, including 115 AA RB211 powered aircraft, as well as 28 ex-TW PW-powered 757-200s. Ex-TWA aircrafts leases expire in 2007, when they will begin being retired from the AA fleet.
I find the ex-TW 757's to be more comfortable than AA's own 757.....regardless...the 757's rock........
they are so overpowered.........
on a side note, AA's 757's are amongst the best looking 757's in the world..

What's interesting to me is that this huge number of airplanes, more with each of the four carriers than the size of most worldwide fleets, is largely overlooked in our discussions about future orders. They can't fly forever; well, they will fly forever but not with the majors, and the shakeout is coming. About the time someone realizes you can't just lose billions of dollars indefinitely, these 757's will all have to be replaced.
