I may be wrong but don't Singapore Airlines and Virgin Atlantic only operate widebodies on mainly long haul (but also medium hall routes?)

Are there any other carriers who operate similar fleets? Im thinking maybe the newer airlines in the Mid East who have similar business plans to SQ i.e. thru traffic via their hub, mainly long haul.

I think EK has only wide-bodies. I think SQ started operations back in 1972 with B707's and B737's.

Etihad and Qatar operate A320's.

Quoting PatZSC (Reply 2):
EVA for example

Also has a couple of A320's.

Doesn't have any A320s. Has a few (leased) MD-90s.



I'm tired of the A vs. B sniping. Neither make planes that shed wings randomly!

Technically, those MD90s are operated by UniAir but in EVA livery.
EVA Air has, recently, put a A320 in its colors but these are operated by Trans Asia Airlines.

Didn't QF already operate a fleet of 737's before they bought Australian Airlines (that was in 1992 wasn't it?)

I believe Australian Airlines themselves seem to be only operating the 767 at the moment.

Gulf Traveller currently only have 767's.
