I was wondering what carrier has the largest fleet of Boeing 757-200 aircraft. If I were to guess I would say that either AA or UA take the cake, atleast in the US.


Also, who has the largest fleet of Boeing 747-400 aircraft?

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  Wink
United have 97
Delta have 84 including 30 odd for Song, which I believe are coming back to their fleet.

Their the main ones of the top of my head, didn't bother thinking anywhere else than the US.

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 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.

DL has 121 757-200s, all PW-powered. 48 Song, 73 DL mainline. All Song aircraft are adding F and being repainted back in mainline colors this summer.

UA at last check had 97 PW-powered 757-200s, though UA's fleet numbers decreased substantially in CH11.

For 747s, BA has the most 747-400s, with 57. JAL has the most 747s total, with 15 -200s, 11 -300, and 44 -400s, for a total of 70. In the mid 90s they had well over 80.

On this regard, one should mention Iceland Air and it's fleet of 17 757's and nothing else.

Well, until last year, when they got their first 763 for the flight KEF-SFO.

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.

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.

Steeler83, I was joking thats why there is a face at the end of the line.

And regarding AA I was obviously talking about 757, because they have no 744's!!

Well, I doubt that's happening considering the production lines for the 757 have closed. Unless they are buying them second hand, they aren't getting from Boeing.

This thread got me thinking...the 757 is the only aircraft type that all of the U.S. Majors (Legacy) currently share in common.

Interesante..

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.. yes

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.

Um, they have the third largest fleet in the world. Not all that many  sarcastic .

United flies 97 of their 98 delivered 757s, the only one missing is the one hijacked on 9/11.

26 Lazyshaun : I wonder who has the largest owned 757 fleet. NW for example have 13 owned 757's in the desert. Does any other airline have lots of its a/c stored in
27 Mudboy : Besides NW, what airlines have the 757-300 and how many, and what are some of their routes?
28 UAXDXer : Mudboy... Check out reply 12 on the this thread... CAL uses the -300 on the high density, low yeaild routes such as LAS, DEN, and MCO.
