Hi A.Netters,

I have just been thinking about airlines who operate the A320 series (318, 319, 320, 321) and the NG 737 Series (736, 737, 738, 739). I dont mean as Qantas and Jetstar i mean under one brand! I feel completely stupid because i can only think of a few when there are loads out there  Confused Orders can count aswell!

Just add to the list!

I am curious to know if these airlines find operating both the A320/737 series profitable? Wouldn't it cost a lot more money to operate the 737/A320S a/c?

True, AIX operates 21 738's. However, AIX is a subsidiary of AI.

Well in cases like Delta it's profitable mostly because they inherited the A320 series. They probably wouldn't say "We'll take the whole fleet.... but not the A320s".

But there are advantages to both families, so having a 737 on a specific route might be a little more profitable than having an A320 and vice versa. Maintenance may cost a little more having to deal with two families but if both fleets are large enough then it may not be such a problem.

Most of the mixed fleets have come round through circumstance. Something like a merger, or a really outstanding deal, on an airline in a transitional state.

In a small fleet i should imagine it cuts potential profits slightly, but in a big fleet it make little difference.

Easyjet are phasing out the 737-700's for A319's and A320's.
TOM inherited their A320/321's from the First Choice merger. These will eventually be phased out when more 737-800's are delivered.
Out of curiousity. Jethro's states 3 737-800's are due to TOM this summer. How many more are on order?
I remember seeing a TOM/TUI which talked about new aircraft including 737 and 787. Does anyone have the link?
A few 737-300's have already left the fleet and more Airbus a/c are supposed to be leaving. On top of this a few 757's have gone to TUI Nordic.

If we were to remove the NG 737 requirement and ask who opperates currently 737 and 320 series. How many airlines would that add?

obviously the 733/4/5 are still profitable or airlines wouldn't still fly them.

In the US I know it adds US and UA....

I think you've hit the key point here that explains most of the mixed fleets out there. I think most airlines will go for one or the other on their narrowbody fleet for obvious reasons, the exceptions seems to be some of the Chinese airlines. One other notable exception of an airline that has pending major orders with both manufactures is Air Berlin, they seem to be perfectly happy ordering new 738s and A320s.

26 Nzrich : Also add Air NZ A320 and 733
27 W3ndytj4n : Hainan Airlines - 733, 734, 738 and 319 Lufthansa - 733, 735, 319, 320 and 321 Shenzhen Airlines - 733, 737, 738, 739, 319 and 320 Thai Air Asia - 73
