I'm not sure of the DC-9s were operating during this period, as they were retired sometime in 2001.

I think Air France has them beat until recently they flew...

Concorde
737-300
737-500
747-200
747-400
767-300
777-200
A319
A320
A321
A330
A340
Fokker 70
Fokker 100

I don't recall if the A300, A310 and 747-100 are still in service
A318 and A380 on order. Are they ordering the A346?

Lufthansa is another big one...

A300
A310
A319
A320
A321
A330
A340-200
A340-300
737-300
737-500
747-200
747-400
767-300
MD-11 cargo


For the most types ever operated overall, I think we determined in a thread a while back that Air France at one time or another has operated just about everything.

In addition to the list above AF operated the A340-200 and -300. They also operate the 747-300. However, the F100 and F70 are operated by subsidiaries in AF colours. If these count then the 146-100, -200 and -300, the ERJ-135, ERJ-145, CRJ-100, CRJ-200 and CRJ-700 can all be added to the list. Quite a lengthy list at that.

Please, don´t count the subtypes:

e.g. IB had "only" ten types left, with A300, A320, A340, 727, 747, 757/767, DC8, DC9, DC10. The 737 were operated by Air Europa.

Same with LH: 747, A330/340, MD11, A300, A310, 757/767, A320, 737, ARJ, CRJ.
If you look at 1992 and/or 1993, all of the above PLUS DC10, DC8, 727, F50.

But then, LH is nearly three times as big as IB - I guess nobody beat IB in an "average number of frames per family" ratio

Back in the 1930s, when The Aviation Corporation (which later became American Airlines and AMR Corp) was first merged together, they operated over sixty types on more than 200 routes. Now they operate:

F.100
MD-80
73NGs
757s
767s
A300s
MD-11s (are these retired yet?)
777s

and until a few months ago:

712s (inherited from TW)
722s

Pretty amazing, if you think about it.

The MD-11 has long since been retired from American's fleet.
