Which airline has the biggest fleet of A330 and A340? And which airline is the biggest operator of A330?

Thanks in advance

Biggest overall fleet: Lufthansa (30 A340s, with more on the way)

Biggest A330 operator: Swissair (14 in service). This will change any time now as Emirates get more A330s; they have total orders for 21

Cathay is not far behind with some 19 A333 and 14 A343 total in service and on order. Not counting the recent deal with ILFC for three A346 and the upcoming order for more 333's, 346es, possibly 345s and the 380ies. Some 744F's may be ordered too

Going by strictly orders (not leases):

I.L.F.C.: 104
Lufthansa: 49
Cathay Pacific: 31
Emirates: 27
Air France: 22
Singapore: 22

All gave some. Some gave all.
