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!

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.

Chicks dig winglets.

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 

Too lazy to work, too scared to steal!
