UA is the only one I can think of, and only because of the merger... DL might eventually get there as well.

When/if Delta takes the 787, you can add 717 to the list, as well.

I checked the 787 orderbook as that is the bottleneck on this moment. Eventually Air China might have them all if they still have 757s and 767s by the time they'll receive their first 787.

Had the 787 been on-time we probably could have had a few airlines on the list, the one that springs to mind for me is CA. Unfortunately they seem to have retired the 767 this year.

ET without the 747 or you can send cargo and do the 747 as well with ET

Now, how about flying all those aircraft in succession. I mean starting with 737 and going in order up to 787. I was thinking about doing this back in 2009 before UA retired their 737s. I was trying to work a 5 leg(737 to 777) domestic itinerary but never came to. Now, since the merger we have the 737 back in the mix, as well as the 787. There will just be a few intl segments though. I'll start working on one.....

I think OP is asking about airlines that will have operated all these at the same time.

Otherwise, there are a number of airlines that have, or will have, operated all or nearly all the Boeing 7*7 types from 707 to 787, excluding the 717: in addition to AA, also UA and ET, and arguably BA (727 with Comair) and QF (727 with Australian Airlines). If you include the 717 the only ones I can think of are AA (717 with TWA) and QF (717 with Impulse/Jetstar/QantasLink, 727 with Australian Airlines).

UA never flew the 707. They went with the DC-8. UA did fly the Boeing 720 though.

LY has all the 7s with exception of the 787, but an order/leasing for some Dreamliners is not out of the question, and there has been speculation of LY receiving a loan to fund this.

However, LY is also close to phasing out the 757s, so whether or not we will see them all together is probably doubtful.

the 720 is actually a subtype of the 707, just a different number for marketing reasons.
Added to that, Continental's past can now be seen as part of United's past and they had 707s as well.

Quoting Mike909 (Reply 16):

LY already had their last 757 phased out, so even if they get 787s next year it's too late to see them together in one fleet.

As others have mentioned, UA has already achieved this. I believe that DL will also achieve this when its 787s are delivered, as I don't see them getting rid of all of their 757s before that happens.

A few 757s will almost certainly still be plying TATL and LatAm routes when the 787s come online.

That bird has never been in the ownership of BA as far as I can tell.
It's "BA" by livery only. Even then, it's the Openskies livery.

Actually, no. United never flew the 707 - they were a DC8 operator. They did buy and operate 720's, however.

I don't think UA currently has any domestic 744s as part of the regular schedule, so the toughest part would be connecting from narrowbody (737) to widebody (747) and back to narrowbody (757) without duplicating or going out of order.

It should be a bit easier task on DL since they have 757s based at NRT, though obviously with them you're just looking at 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. As a random example:

MSP --(737)--> DTW --(747)--> NRT --(757)--> GUM --(767)--> NRT --(777)--> MSP

However the FAA has a separate type certificate data sheet for the 720.


25 boeing773ER : Off topic, but before the door it has the EU flag, and next to it is the USA flag why? I thought the airplane only needed the country (or zone) it is
26 Viscount724 : Probably just to promote it's only transatlantic destination, and the US and EU flags nicely link the airline's name to the US-EU Open Skies agreemen

30 steex : Fair enough. I guess I was picturing trying to do it as a round-trip to and from the same place, which would be more difficult to pull off on UA.
31 olddominion727 : DL will have (had) 717,727,737,747,757,767,777,787 I don't know about the 707
32 PHX787 : DL is apparently going to cancel and re-order their 787s with the -9 model once the prototypes are certified, according to a lot of inside rumors. So
33 Viscount724 : No 707s. DL operated 42 DC-8s.
34 Antoniemey : I think it would make more sense for them to just convert the existing order, since it's already on the books and delivery deferred...
35 PHX787 : Well could they convert the delivery date too?
36 flightsimer : But is that because of need or rather out of customer demand? As i understand it, originally, it was supposed to be called the 707-020 until United r
