I'm a fan of NW because of almost congestion-free MSP, but their fleet is too diverse (split between Boeing/AB), too old, and most of their regional planes are Saab 340s.

Have to say CO--most intelligent fleet planning. Reasons:

-Well balanced, young and relatively similar jets (except, obviously, for their MD-80s) in a good size range, from the 735 through the 772.

-All-jet CO Express fleet strategy--nearly complete.

I could say the same for AA, but they still have their 727s/MD-80s/F100s, plus for a while they'll still have TWA's DC-9s and MD-80s. DL too, once they get rid of their 727s/MD-11s.

I think CO has the best fleet, it's certainly the newest fleet. After their fleet modernization they will have B-737-700/800/900, B-757-200/200ER/300, B-767-200/300/400ER, B-777-200/200ER, and the ERJ-135/145.

No doubt, Delta has the best fleet and soon Delta will have a better fleet than this.

Air NZ have a nice fleet, reasonably young, but what about Emirates - once the A310s have gone, they will have a fleet without compare - especially when their new orders come in

KissL1011,

CO has not ordered the B767-300 and I doubt CO will buy the B777-200. B777-200ER definitely, but not the B777-200 (the so-called 'A' version).

I have to agree that CO has a nice fleet going, both on economics and flexibility.

CX has a good fleet structure set-up, with the A340-600 and B777-300ER possible without affecting the operating economics too seriously. EK similar.

Northwest for operating more of a variety and the classics
