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.

Most common? 737 followed by the DC-9 series and then the A320 family. Of course I admit that the A319/320 is very close, if not actually #2. I am several months out of the loop in the count.


Damn, this website is getting worse daily.

The 737 family, by far the most popular in terms of numbers. Next, probably the DC-9/MD-80 series. Regards.

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"

Probably the 737. Southwest, Continental, United, American, Delta, US Airways, Alaska, and America
West all operate it. Southwest alone has the
biggest 737 fleet in the world.

I'd have to say the 757 is probably the second
most common jet seen at US airports. Again, AA,
UA, DL, NW, CO, US, HP, TW, and even ATA all
operate it.

The A320 is common enough, thanks to the vast
fleets operated by UA and NW, and the growing
numbers in the US and HP fleets as well as JetBlue.

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.......

Boeing 737:
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).

McDonnell Douglas MD-80/90/DC-9 series:
TWA, Delta, American, Midwest Express, Vanguard, USAirways

Boeing 757:
Delta, United, TWA (occasionally)

Boeing 727:
Delta, American, United

CRJ and ERJ:
Comair, Continental Express

Airbus A320 family:
USAirways, United, soon to come....Frontier

Beech 1900D:
Air Midwest (USAirways Express)

Fokker F100:
USAirways

Airbus A310:
FedEx

DC-8, DC-9F:
Airborne Express, UPS, DHL

B757F: UPS

B747F:
Connie Kalitta,

That's all I can think of at the moment!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
