Every year Aviation Week and Space Technology publishes a list of the 50 largest airlines in the world I was wondering if anyone had the latest list available.

Actually it goes something like this:
1.) United
2.) American Airlines
3.) Delta Airlines
4.) Northwest Airlines
5.) British Airways
6.) Lufthansa
7.) Continental
8.) Air France

I am certain that all of these are in the top 8. I know #1-5 are accurate but #6-8 may actually be in a different order.

I think you have it exact...again, maybe 6-8 are a little out of order, I dont know-but it looks pretty damn accurate to me.

Well it depends... Air France is not the 8th, I believe.

Well in I don't know which type of bigest, UAL is 1, LH is 2, AF is 3.
For the pax transprted, DL is the biggest...I don't know what after (AA?) and in europe AF is 1, and LH is 2 and BA is 3
