Is AA The Only Airline W/ All 4 Fleet Types?

Wed Jul 30, 2003 8:33 am

AA currently has Airbus, Boeing, Fokker & McDonnell Douglas. Are they the only airline in the world with all 4 manufacturing companies?

Yeah, yeah, yeah......not counting Embraer or Bomberdiar

Yeah, yeah, yeah....McD and Fokker are gone...

KLM will soon have A330s.
Are you including subsidiaries operating under the parent's banner? Airlines such as Austrian and Lufthansa would then be included. If not:

Korean Air has all four, although retirement of the F100s has started:

Not to impune upon the original question....

But a much more relevant grouping "4 types" would be Boeing, Airbus, Embraer, and Bombardier...

again AA jumps onto the list, as does US and HP among others.

Since when did HP operate any McD Or Fokker?

Dan-

Re-read ConcordeBoy's post. He's saying that if you say the "Four Types" are the only major ones existing as businesses today (Boeing, Airbus, Embraer and Bombardier) then you can add HP and US to the mix.

Although I don't believe HP operates any Embraer aircraft, so that excludes them.

I think the term "all" is rather a misnomer.

Perhaps you've heard of the following:

Lockheed, Ilyushin, Tupolev, Antonov, Saab, Dornier, Concorde, ATR, BAe, etc

Garuda Indonesia has all four I think although the F-28 is being operate by Citilink, their low cost hands. Also I think they are looking to retire their DC-10 too.
Their fleet now are:
B747-200/400
B737-300/400/500
A330-300
DC-10-30
F28-4000 (citilink)

The HP express was operated by Chautauqua when they had their hub in CMH. Now those are gone ... to Delta Connection. I don't believe HP or its express divisions operate any Embraer jets currently.
I've flown on 9V-SPK.

Iberia flies these - and Bombardier too. MD-88 and MD-87, Boeing 757, 747, Airbus 319/320/321, 340-300/600, Fokker 50 (I think) as well as some Q-series aircraft and CRJs.
