Fantasy:Pick An Airline & Build Its Fleet.

Wed Jul 24, 2002 11:51 am

Greetings folks...
For a light-hearted good time here, pick an airline of your choice and build the fleet any way you choose. Try to be a little realistic with your numbers. For example, I like to see AF & BA have 10 Concordes apiece, not 1000. For my choice, I chose American...this is what I like to see.

A300-605R - 36, up from 34 now.
B737-823 - 185, up from 118 ordered.
B757-223 - 175, up from 151 now.
B767-223 - none. The 757 does the job just as well.
B767-323 - 70, up from 49 plus 9 on order.
B777-223 - 50. Three more than what was ordered.
F-100 - 110. Currently 74. Grab the 40 from USAir, add 36, use 4 for parts.
MD-80 - 365. Currently 362. Add three more, for one MD-80 for every day of the year just for the hell of it.  Wink/being sarcastic

So that's my dream fleet for AA. I'd just use the existing fleet & twisted the numbers around to my liking. It's all in fun only, not to be taken seriously.  Wink/being sarcastic
Enjoy & regards.

Korean Air
80 A330s from 16
18 737-900s from 16
17 737-800s from 14
no more 747-400 as KE has enough (27)
30 777-200s from 6
15 777-300s from 5
13 Fokker 100s from 10
no more MD-80 as KE are retiring them.
The biggest mistake made by most human beings: Listening to only half, understanding just a quarter and telling double.

A330-300: currently 8, up to 15.
A340-300: currently 10, down to 0. Need some space for the upcoming A340-500/600

737-200: currently 26, down to 20. Need some place for the other oldies.

I'm loving the OP who wanted to expand AA's F100 fleet. (LOL!!!! The irony...)

Flybe:

BAe 146-300 - 0 from 7 on the out anyway and horrid compared to other members of the fleet.
Embraer 145 - 0 from 20 also on the out but bad compared to Q400s
Dash 8 Q400 - 90 from 36 with 24 on order. Fantastic economical aircraft with great CASM. Comfortable for the passenger and the quietest lightest cabin with good window height and low vibration.
Embraer 195 - 25 from 10. Good jet with good economics for the number of passengers. Ideal for purpose and compliments the Q400.
Boeing 737-800 - 15 from 0. Ideal size for expansion into larger markets, like FRA, AMS and CDG from UK regionals like Southampton, Birmingham and Exeter.
AF BE BY FR MV PD SZ U2 VZ DHC6, 8-3/4Q, 732/8, 763ER, A319, A380

I will chose B6:

50 E195 (Shorter/Regional routes)
25 A321
15 B737-900ER w/winglets
10 B773ER (Ultra-Long haul routes for B6 someday)
15 A340-600 (Trans Atlantic routes)

Thats it.

Despite the fact that this airline has had several incarnations...

Despite the fact that the current economic climate is very hostile to airlines...

And despite the fact that I don't have anywhere near enough money to lose, err, invest on an airline...


I choose Pan Am.  Smile

Ditch the rail cars, the Jetstreams, 727s, and anyone remotely associated with Gilford, then re-equip the fleet with:

10 ERJ-195s for scheduled services
5 B737-800s for charter work.
I lift things up and put them down.
