As TWA902fly pointed out, Aeroflot was by far the worlds largest airline, as it controlled every aircraft movement with in the Soviet Union. However, Air France's route network was far-flung for an airline in those days, serving the Far East, Africa, North America, and South America. I think Timz is correct in assuming that Air France was the largest in mileage.
