NW also has a bunch of A320's plus some 330's

UA has 320's but most (all?) are with TED

US also ordered A318's but they havent been delivered and are rumored to be cancelled

DL has no airbusses currently and only operated the A310 after the purchased part of Pan Am

AA has about 30 A300's

CO operated A300's back in the day and also ordered A340's but cancelled them

Actually 205 from the company fact sheet:
Airbus 319: 93
Airbus 320: 75
Airbus A321: 28
Airbus A330: 9

You can actually get this info from Airbus's orders & deliveries spreadsheet (though they list America West & US Airways as having a total of 204 operated). Northwest just beats out United for #2 for Airbus operators in the U.S.A.

NW used to be the largest in the world, until the US/HP merger.

US/HP no longer has the A318 on the books. It was traded in for some bigger siblings. Someone else can give you the specifics, as I can't recall them specifically.

I cant remember how many they had on order but after 9/11, the delivery date was pushed back and then eventually cancelled and converted to 319's and 20's.
