I wish to know if there are many large modern day airlines (i.e. Delta and BA) still using aircraft with a flight engineer. Any replies would appreciated!
Thanks

Not that I am aware of. Older airplanes like DC10, B742 need a flight engineer, rest is all 2 people in the cockpit required.

FedEx is the only major carrier in the US that still has aircraft that require FE's.

A number of smaller operators have aircraft that require them still.

About the largest amount of FE's out there right now are at FedEx on the 727's, they still have a sizable fleet of about 75-80 of them. Other than that, just smaller companies operating the older airplanes like the 747 Classic, 727 and the DC-8&10 but no major's are operating these aircraft anymore. Unfortunately it's a dying position in the industry
