Passenger Airlines With An All-heavy Fleet!

Thu May 08, 2008 7:36 pm

Did a search about this, and couldn't find anything.

How many PASSENGER airlines have an all-heavy fleet? We'll include the B757 as a heavy. For those who want an exact number as to what is a heavy aircraft and what isnt, the cut-off weight is 255,000 lbs.

Here are the ones i can think of:

Air Transat
Zoom Airlines (and Zoom UK)
Emirates Airlines
Cathay Pacific
Virgin Atlantic
LTU International
Viva Macau

Anyone know of any other airlines?

SQ only operates widebodies, as I recall.

LTU, and Belair, are fully integrated into Air Berlin, so that it in theory incorrect  Smile
SWISS remains Swiss. With Lufthansa. :D
