AA is the largest in terms of planes (its all of those MD-80s!).
DL is the largest in terms of passengers.
UA is the largest in terms of profits (I think).

Delta carried the most passengers (over 100 million last year I think) and I'm pretty sure that UAL is the largest in terms of planes with around 630. I hope someone can correct me if I am wrong...

You both hit it. For years, UAL has had the largest number of aircraft.

Hi all! I have heard that Delta (last year) carried more passengers than any other US airline.
I've gotta go,
