Airlines Operating Entire Fleet To One Airport?

Hi all

Something interesting just made me wonder

Kuwait airways operates a daily flight KWI BOM KWI as KU 301/302

These are operated by A320/ A310/A300/A340/b777 on different days of the week

That Infact is the entire fleet of the airline with regards to aircraft types
Is this unique

Are there any other routes where the whole fleet is operated?

Cheers

I know this is not what you are exactly looking for, but technically ...

FR operates its 'entire fleet' to every airport they fly, i.e., B737-800 ...
Same for W6 and A320 ...

It may be the case with some other LCC's ...

CX flies anything and everything into TPE. Over the years, I've flown the A333, A343, A346, 744, 772, 773, and 77W between TPE and HKG.

Additionally, CX's subsidiary Dragon Air (KA) flies its A320 and A333 between TPE and HKG as well.

I'm pretty sure both CI and BR also fly at least all their wide-body types between those two airports (CI may use the 738 as well, I don't know, but I rather doubt it).



I'm tired of the A vs. B sniping. Neither make planes that shed wings randomly!

Might i also add that TG flies everything at their disposal BKK HKG BKK especially TG600/601 which is currently an A380

I have travelled on A300/A330-300 /772/773/77W/A345/A346/A380/747-400

Only exception is the 737-400 but with them being phased put i guess thats pretty much the whole fleet.

However the topic is wether any airline uses their entire fleet to one destination under a single flight number like KU does ?

cheers

Yes CX does that all the time and it is restricted to regional flights only to selected ports only! For instance, CX739 (HKG-SIN) will turn around as CX734 (SIN-HKG) and it has used every single aircraft type in CX's fleet (A330, A343, A346, 744, 772, 773, 77W) and the aircraft type keeps changing every single day!

CI has 737-800s on the route sometimes. BR's entire fleet comes to HKG including their MD90s and A321.

Its worth noting that many Asian destinations receive the entire CX passenger fleet. Places like BKK, CEB, NRT, SIN etc...most of the larger destinations in the network.

TG does not regularly swap aircraft types on a certain flight though. The A300 has not been here for a long time for example and as far as I know, no TG 777-300ER has ever visited HKG although I stand to be corrected.


SQ fly all their aircraft types to HKG too.

We were originally booked on TG600 and the 747-400 had some problems with the engines and was swapped for a brand new 777-300er that day so was lucky to get on that
when we entered it was like we were travelling in Jet Airways as the interiors looked familiar
it was later that i understood that TG had taken over some aircraft from 9W and hence the similarity.
so yes i have travelled into HKG on a 77W

Icelandair operates 753s to BOS, JFK and occasionally YYZ in N-America and in Europe it operates on a regular basis to LHR and CPH, sometimes to FRA, AMS and ARN, occasionally OSL and very rarely CDG and MAN. Obviously all those airports get 752s also, so those would qualify.

The TG 737-400 is NOT flying into Changi and not into HKG. Let s be more correct in answering the question. The threadstarter was aksing about the entire fleet, not only the widebody fleet.

AA flies their entire mainline fleet into their DFW hub:

-MD-80
-737-800
-757
-767-300ER
-777-200ER
-777-300ER (very soon)

Not sure if this will change next year with the addition of the A319 and A321.

American Eagle also flies all or almost all their fleet types into DFW (including the CRJ-700, which there is no DFW pilot base for - not sure if there are ER3s at DFW).

AA also owns the 767-200, which it does NOT fly into DFW. However, LAX does see their whole fleet, including eagle and skywest's CR2, which flies ONLY out of LAX.

CLT-PHL currently sees all of US's mainline fleet with the exception of the A333:

-B734
-B752
-B767
-A319
-A320
-A321
-A332
-E90


CLT sees all US mainline fleet, as does PHL.

MCO sees A319, A320, A321, A332, B734, B757, B767. They see all mainline aircraft except the A333 and E90. I believe MCO is the spoke location in the US that sees a A330 on a regular basis.

Southwest operates all of its fleet types into every airport they fly too.      

That depends if we're defining "fleet" by family or by model.

As Southwest operates an all-737 fleet, they would meet the criteria on that basis.

But if we define it by model, then an airport would have to see service with the 737-300, the 737-500, the 737-700 and the 737-800.
