OK, so management changes, mergers happen, routes come and go, deals are done and some airlines seem to end up with the most diverse fleets! Some airlines seem to go out of their way to operate every competing aircraft type!

So, the question is: Who flies the most diverse fleet?

To start it off, I'll start with my airline, British Airways:

1. Concorde
2. Boeing 747-400
3. Boeing 777-200/ER
4. Boeing 767-300ER
5. Boeing 757-200
6. Airbus A321 (ordered)
7. Airbus A320-100/-200
8. Airbus A319
9. Boeing 737-400
10. Boeing 737-300
11. Boeing 737-500
12. AVRO RJ
13. ATR 72

.... and then if you include CitiExpress (wholly owned subsidary)
14. ATP
15. Jestream 41
16. Embraer 145
17. Dash 8 -300
18. BAe 146 -100/-200/-300

... and then, the Franchises with other types (Maersk, Comair, Loganair):
19. Canadair CRJ-200
20. Canadair CRJ-700
21. Boing 737-200
22. Boeing 727-200
23. Saab 340
24. Twin Otter
25. BN Islander

OK, is there a more diverse fleet out there?

Cheers  Smile

Off the top of my head, I thought about Aeroflot, but then again since the break-up of the Soviet bloc, it still may be Aeroflot.  Smile Must do some research here. Regards.

AF does not operate the F70/F100, these aircraft are flown by subsidiaries like Air Littoral.
They do fly the B747-300 however, which is missing in one of the previous postings.

Yeah Subzero...

Southwest has no 737-800, but they do have a 200.

TriStar500...

Ok, include the F70 and 100 in the regionals for Air France I have on there. What about the DC-10? Isn't one of Air France's subsidiarys flying the DC-10 too Air Liberte?

ConcordeBoy- I live in U.S. and Air France doesn't even serve my hometown airport so I don't know a lot about it. I just recall thinking that I read that they were getting the A340-600. Do they have the A340-200? I believe that they used to, but do they still? The A300 is out of service right for AF?

I think if you went thru Air France's history (including subsidiaries), they flew practically all of the different main types of jet aircraft made except I think the MD-11, 757 and DC-8.

Air France has the most diverse fleet, and BA being the runner-up. Continental....considering they only operate Boeing's (even though they operate a good portion of the Boeing civil fleet), and the MD-80's, I don't consider it to be too diverse. Air France operates both Boeing, and Airbus, and their affiliates operate embraer, Bombardier, Bae, and Britten Norman. I think it is the most diverse by a landslide. BA has a nice diverse fleet as well. Love to see it.

I would regard the 319/320/321 as 1 type really.BA are greatly reducing the 752 fleet and I expect a 321 order to replace the last 15 752s soonish.
AF came to my mind too especially when they have both the CRJ+ERJ!

Don't forget that some of Air Canada's regional partners (ie Air Alliance) also fly the Beech 1900. At MHT, we get 4 of them each day that go up to YYZ.

AF no longer flies the A342 nor A300 and they also have no orders for the A346 as they currently are to become the first non-Asian operator of the 773
