Does anybody know the Market Cap. for EK?
Would it not be expected to increase to soon be in this list, no?

EK is not listed on any stock exchange so it'd be difficult for EK to be on that list until it's actually listed.

Anyway market capitalisation = share price * number of shares on offer. It really does not say very much about a company. At any given point it time it just tells you what people on that particular day were willing to pay for those lots of shares that were traded on the stick exchange.

Market cap by itself may not say much but an increase (and decrease) in market cap sure does, especially when the stock has moved up 40% in one year.

According to AA's 2005 annual report, they had 138 374 million revenue passenger miles, so that would be about 220 000 million RPK's. This is for the entire network. Couldn't find any detailed numbers for domestic/international traffic.

Yahoo finance quotes a market cap of 10,02 billion euros, so at today's exchange rate, that's about 13 billion dollars.

Those numbers are wrong. AA is largest by RPKs, and UA, DL, CO, and NW are all above the likes of BA and LH.

There are some many terms for worlds largest:
-by market capitalization
-by revenue
-by number of planes (fleet)
-by RPK
-by passenger numbers
-by number of flights
-by number of destinations

Hi all

I know there are a lot of disputes over the numbers.

But hey, I posted based on what I read in a business newspaper and the sources for these numbers seems credible, eg. Bloomberg and ATW.

From all the different figures posted by fellow A.netters, it's hard to determine which are the correct ones.
