Ideal Fleet For Your Favourite Airline

Mon May 07, 2001 3:47 pm

Does anyone have their ideal fleet (includes # of fleet) for their favourite airline?

I would like to see SIA having: 20 A380-800 (for flights to major cities), 80 B777, 60 Sonic Cruiser (for super long-haul and trunk routes), 30 B747-400, 15 B747-400F.

Any ideas and opinions? (I know my combination might be 60 Sonic Cruiser)

Singapore Airlines

Boeing 777-200s for Regional Routes
Boeing 747-400LR for Long-Haul routes which don't need an Airbus A380-800
Airbus A380-800 for Long Haul High Density routes
Airbus A380-(the short one with long range), for non-stop flights to the West Coast of the North Americas.
Airbus A340-300X for African routes (Dunno why, just seems nice)
Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.

bmi british midland:

3 A340-600 ex LHR to Pakistan/India & Rio de Janiero.
10 more A330-200s for flights to the Middle East & Israel ex LHR an for more flights to the USA & Canada from MAN.
4 B757-300 (unlikely I know!) for flights to ex-colonies in Africa (I'm sure there'd be enough demand).
