Wow, AA is down to 691? What were they at their peak? I seem to recall a figure slightly over 800.

In 2004 AA had 754.

I seem to remember a figure of over 950 in one of the preceding years.

A lot of people add AA and Eagle together because they are subsidiaries of the same company

The US has 300 million people and is potentially a non-stop flight from every major world city except perhaps JNB (and the problem is on the JNB end). New Zealand has just over 4 million people and is too distant from several destinations. Any questions?

ATW seems to be wrong an awful lot. UA has around 450 aircraft, not 404, and FedEx has way more than 338 planes. NW also has more than 365 planes. Where are these bogus numbers coming from?

Yes that is true the USA has a much greater population. New Zealand is a large tourist destination however. This means that most of the traffic to/from New Zealand flying on NZ is actually tourists. I don't have exact numbers but one would guestimate that most USA carriers fly with 75% Americans on their aircraft overall.
This is why NZ is relatively large for the size of New Zealand (and not forgetting much of the fleet is turbo props for domestic flights within New Zealand).  Wink

I do find that ATW are a bit behind the times with some of their data.
Eg; they still list Air Canada with 12 DC9s and 747-400s, 747-200s and 737-200s in their fleet. These aircraft are loooong gone.

The FedEx list does not include all the C208s.
