>>As far as I can tell Its American at the moment, followed by United and then British Airways. <<
Not quite, sir.
American, United, then Delta. British Airways figures further down the list, and ranks FIRST on being the Biggest International Airline, given that most BA flights (including those to Europe) are regarded as 'international'.
And the US/UA deal really is as dead as Kiwi Airlines.

Just wondering why everyone says United is bigger than Delta... I believe Delta has more planes and definetely flies more pax.
But as far as I know it goes American, United, Delta, Continental, British Airways(or Northwest?)

When you ask for the biggest airline, there will always be discrepencies. How do you determine the term 'biggest'? Is it by the number of pax carried? The revenue? The size of the fleet? If so, should it include its regionals?
Be more specific. There are just too many ways to measure an airline's size.
