Just an educated guess, but the 737 would have to be it. With UAL, DAL, SWA, AAL, COA, AWE, USA, ASA all having large numbers of every type from the -200 to the -900. I think the MD80 series would be 2nd.

Popular in terms of amount would definitely be the 737 with Southwest owning close to 400, with Delta, United and Continental having well over 100 a piece. AA approaching the 100 mark with the 800 series. Along with several smaller start up type carriers flying them also.
But the most recognizable and known aircraft by the general American public who don't know anything about airliners is probably the 747. You point to a plane and ask a person who doesn't know aircraft what type it is, he most likely will say "a 747"

Simply from looking at my home airport here in Kansas City, it's obviously the Boeing 737 family. Kansas City has a little over 300 daily departures, on 18 airlines, to over 50 destinations in the US, and one in Canada. At KCI this is what the following airlines operate.......
United, Continental, Southwest, America West, Frontier, Delta Express, Vanguard, USAirways and occasionally American with their 738s (I talked to the AA station manager about the MD-80, 737-800 fleet plans and when we'd start seeing 738s and he said we already see them every now and then).
