Hi Lindy, you post:

"If you put together UAL and AA you will have size of British Airways, so don't fight if you aint right. "

Here's the fleet size of UAL, AAL, BAW and AFL:

AAL: 766 aircrafts
UAL: 698 aircrafts
BAW: 309 aircrafts
AFL: 152 aircrafts

So, just UAL fleet is twice the size of British Airways fleet.

Sorry Iain, english is not my natural language and I don't understand your spelling.
Are you saying that BA has about 100 planes? I don't get it. Please, ask me in other way.

My source is the JP airline fleets 1998.

I was at LAX with Iain and the guy we where talking to
was adding up the fleets of American,UAL,BA,Virgin
in his JP (98) and he came to the conclusion that
UAL was the biggest with American in second! That
is not including the new planes that have been deliverd
to both airlines. BA, Virgin are no where near AA or UAL.
FedEx has more planes than Virgin! hehe
Start counting !



Where is that darn caculator!!

My spelling was worng. When I put but it was meant to be by. I am sorry about that. I would like to say how good your English is I would of thought you have beening speaking that all your life.
About the book the on ethat you mentioned. When I was looking at the BA fleet it did not include the ATP's and all of there franchise which is about 100 planes. They did not include the BA orders like they did united and AA. I did not see Spirit of Sir Friddie in the book but I could of missed that as I flew throught Virgins page.
Sorry about the spelling!

Hey guys,

I just become curious and went to JP book count the airline fleets of AA, UA, BAW and AFL.

Zmey, I only count Aeroflot AFL. I didn't count with commuter / domestic associated airlines with Aeroflot.

Iain, no problem with the spelling, I like to learn more about english language, I'll need it.

Lindy, no need to apologize.

All the best

Yah but does Aeroflot own any of the
aircraft? I don't think so. They used to have
the biggest fleet in the world at one time. Just
go to Eygpt and you will see some of them.

I went into the Guiness book of records. And they still say that aeroflot is the largest airline by planes. I understand you doubt tha because of all the giuness the people who wrote that book have had but I am sure they researched it and came up with that answer and did not just was I think like we are here. If you go to Russia you will be gombsmacked (this is an english expresion for very surprise. You smack your bob meaning mouth)
