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?

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