KORD has so many types, we should go by terminals.
On United's terminal you can see many types, all the way from 727s to 747s. United Express has put there few Bae 146s, and new Dornier 328s; you can even spot ATPs.
American has also almost every type they fly - 727, 73NGs, 767s, Fokker 100s, and many Super 80s.
Delta flies 727 shuttle to JFK and 757s to ATL.
On international terminal, you can spot 742s (BA, Virgin, Korean), MD-11 (Swissair), B747 (Lufthansa), A330-300 (Sabena), 767s (SAS, LOT, sometimes Aeroflot), A310 (CSA) etc...
Aircraft operations: average 2490/day
15% air taxi
4% transient general aviation
Chicago Midway - MDW, has mostly 737s nowdays. It used to have more 727s while ATA & KIWI operated them; regular visitors are also 757s and DC-9 (Northwest) and maybe 717 with the arrival of AirTran on this aiprort. Lots of small turboprops like Jetsreams etc.
Aircraft based on the field: 161
Aircraft operations: average 831/day
Single engine airplanes: 62
Multi engine airplanes: 20
Jet airplanes: 53
32% transient general aviation

At SFO, there are a lot of United Shuttle 737 aircraft. Southwest, Delta and Continental also operate 737's. However, American, Delta and United all operate quite a few 757's and 767's. At LAX, half an hour of spotting will reveal lots of 737's (America West, Southwest, United, American). But many airlines also operate 747's (Northwest, United, Asiana, Japan, Cathay Pacific, Singapore, Malaysia, Air New Zealand, British Airways, Virgin, KLM, Lufthansa, etc...).

Here in POS (Port of Spain) the MD80 is the most common jet type. BWIA based here has 5 of the MD83 and use them on services to KIN, MIA, YYZ, CCS and GEO. Air ALM come in from CUR daily with their MD82 and Surinam Airways used to use a MD87 into POS several times weekly from PAR; they seem to have switched to a DC9-50 now. Aeropostal also flies DC9-50 here, making 4 operators of the DC9 family here.
The Dash 8 series is the most common turboprop type and the most common overall, being flown by BWee Express (Q300), LIAT (100/300), Caribbean Star (100/300) and occasionally Surinam Airways (300).
Until recently the 737 family was also strongly represented by Air Caribbean (200) and BWIA (800) but the demise of the former has seen its two jets grounded. With 6 800s being introduced by BWee, this type would eventually supersede the MD80 as the leading type here.
Overall in the Caribbean, the DC9 family is the most commonly used jet type (other operators being Air Jamaica (MD83) and the collapsed Air Aruba (MD88, MD90) ) and the Dash 8 the commonest turboprop (EC Xpress and Bahamasair being other operators). Bahamasair and Cayman Airways also fly 737-200s.

At YHM its like 70% 727 there is not a single moment in time with out a 727. next it would be the 737 nut with in 3 year I think the 737 will take over as most common inless another airline with 727 come in.

It has to be 747!! In HKG, over 40% flights are 747s. It is probably because of the high pop'n density and little space in Asian cities. There are more chances that you can see wide-body a/c in Asian cities than in N. America. However, there are more and more 747-200/300s retiring. =( On the other hand, there should be more and more 777s and A330/340 in the Azn arpts. Hope to see an A3XX landing in HKG on regular basis in the future too.

Here in Seattle, we get a lot of Alaska 737s and MD-80s. Other common types include UA 757s, NW 757s and DC-10s, AA MD-80s, and of course, Southwest. DL also has quite a few 757s. I have seen an Air Canada A340 here once, probably diverted from YVR. I don't think an A330 has ever been to SEA.

Mason forgot Dash 8s, F-28s (both with Horizon) and Brasilias (with United Express) at SEA. BFI (Boeing Seattle) sometimes gets either an MD-11 leased to UPS from Gemini, or a 747 by UPS, 757 and 727-100 from UPS, 767s from Airborne, and DC-8s from BAX, and of course 737s (-600,-700,-800,-900) from all airlines.
