Largest Wide-body Fleet?

Mon Mar 11, 2002 1:35 pm

Which airline has the largest fleet of wide-body A/C?? Is it a US airline like AA/DL/UA??? How about JL, BA, SQ, CX????

I would guess DL just because of it's 767 fleet? Then again AA for the same reason???
You mad Bro???

UA has been for some time.

Couting the 744s/777s in storage/parked/et. al, United has 158:

44 744
56 763
58 777

3 more 777 yet to be delivered

158...WOW That's certainly impressive.

Can't seem to find FedEx's fat-body fleet numbers anywhere...anyone else know?

to the best of my knowledge,
BA has 57 x 744 (largest of any airline I think...)
35 x 777
27 x 763

which makes about 119 wideboys I think... pre cuts those figures tho, so may be slightly different today. Anyone know better?

Alexinwa--you forgot to include AA's A300s. I think they have 34 of them.

BA has the largest fleet of 744s in the world.
It also has 10 more 777s than you mentioned.

So it owns the following aircraft (not all with BA, at least 6 767s with QF):
57 744s (one with QF as VH-NLH i believe)
45 777s (all with BA)
27 763s (at least 6 with QF registered as VH-ZX* and many others parked)

JAL has a sizeable 747 fleet (i think around 80 at the minute) and a few 767s, MD11s, 777s and DC10s but im not sure how many in total..

I think it would be UA with the largest with JAL close behind, along with other makor US carriers and maybe BA close behind.

Well, the current FedEx widebody fleet is approx (and I say "approx" because we are taking deliveries constantly, the actual numbers are a bit higher as we acquire additional aircraft not in the fleet plan as the opportunity presents itself):

DC-10 : 50
MD-10 : 14 (getting 1-2/month, so may be more)
MD-11: 38 (may not include the 3 we just got from China)
A300/310: 83 (believe we just got some more of those also)

The above numbers are above what the fleet plan originally called for, and doesn't include all the firm orders, obviously, but the total is 185 today. Fleet plan shows 217 by May 04.

Singapore Airlines Limited has an all wide-body fleet. They've never really taken a shine to narrow bodies. The 757 was dumped after a couple of years of service. Now serving with Delta I believe.
Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.

I would say that FedEx isn't just "in the top 10" but is clearly #1 by a wide margin that is growing!
