Though this doesn't answer your question, I remember when I spent a day at Air Canada headquarters in Montreal, I did a tour of the flight attendant training facility. The flight attendant who took me around informed me that on Air Canada, flight attendants must be certified on all of the aircraft in its fleet...from the lowly 737-200 to the giant 747-400-Combi!

I don't think there's a limit, but don't quote me on that. I was qualified on the:

F100
727
737
757
767
777
A300
S80

at the same time. I can't think of an airline that has more A/C types than this in the U.S. I used to have a roommate who flew for Lufthansa. He was only qualified on the 737 and 747. He said German law only allowed them to fly 2 different types of A/C.

hi there

i am flying for LUXAIR in Luxembourg, and we are qualified on a maximum of three types at the same time. these are the
737-400/-500 (same safety equipment and same location of this equipment)
ERJ145
Fokker F50

although we just use those 3 types, we would not be allowed to operate on one more type

take care
