Airlines with most twin widebodies subtypes?

Wed Jun 12, 2019 9:34 pm

Hi all:

In such a strongly saturated market with all the existing variants of last generations 763,764 772, 773, A332, A333, and the e prolific new ones 788, 789, 7810 A359, A35K, 77X, etc., and so close variants between both Airbus and Boeing, I was wondering......

Which ones are the airlines with most twin widebodies suptypes?. Now and in the future?
Thanks in advance.

Add Turkish & China Southern onto the list, they not only loves collection a/c types but different engines as well, TK for example has all three types of engines on its A330 fleet.

Good one! They also had 77F from Southern Air at the same time, only lacing 77Ls and that would be a full house.

Except A320, 737 and 757 don't really qualify as widebodies.
717, 721/2, 732/3/4/5/7/8/9, 742/3/4, 752/3, 762/3, 772/E/W, 788/9, 300,310, 319,320/1, 332/3, 359, 388, DC9, DC10, F28, F100, 142,143, E75/90, CR2, D82/3/4, SF3, ATR

747, DC-10, and MD-11 are not twin. The OP specifically mentions "twin" and "widebodies". :)

By my estimates, the greatest current number of WB twin subtypes in any individual airline is 8. This is shared between 3 airlines, TG, DL & UA

TG 333, 359, 772, 77E, 773, 77W, 788, 789
DL 763, 764, 77E, 77L, 359, 332, 333, 339
UA 763, 764, 772, 77E, 77W, 788, 789, 78J
717, 721/2, 732/3/4/5/7/8/9, 742/3/4, 752/3, 762/3, 772/E/W, 788/9, 300,310, 319,320/1, 332/3, 359, 388, DC9, DC10, F28, F100, 142,143, E75/90, CR2, D82/3/4, SF3, ATR

Add JL when their A350 arrives, also with a total of 8 WB twins:

Does TG no longer fly the 744 or the a380?

You can arguably say they have 9 - 763, 76E, 772, 77E, 773, 77W, 788, 789,and A359 as it's been delivered apparently.

Whilst not twins, IIRC TG had the 744, 388, 345 & 346 all operating at the same time for a while addition to all of their different wide-body twins. Getting an equipment sub on TG is something fun!

Split those hairs, United has 3 long haul planes which given how big they are is justifiable. Thai operates every long haul ever made by Airbus and Boeing, why they have 787 and A350 who knows ? Delta's past mostly Boeing fleet has been heavily Airbussed by the Northwest merger and huge orders for A350-900 and A300-900.

They're just one of an increasing number of airlines that operate or have ordered both.

If the Air Transat acquisition goes ahead, AC would have:

A310-300
A330-200
A330-300
B767-300ER
B777-200LR
B777-300ER

Thanks for the replies
One of the reason I came across this is because BAW latest a35K made me wonder.
With that one they have:
788
789
772
773
A35K

And in order:
777-X9

But do they also have orders for 78K and 777-8X?. That would also make 8.

And is there any other company which could reach taht with pending orders?

More correctly...

333, 359, 77E (Since all their "non-ER" 772 are just derated 77E), 773, 77W, 78X; So 6 types. 7 if you count A359ULR as a separate subtypes. A380 is not a twin :). Scoot also have 788 and 789, but ultimately it's a separate airline.

Another one:
NH - 763, 763ER, 772, 77E, 773, 77W, 788, 789, and 78X for 9 types, tie with JL. IIRC the non-ER 763 will soon be gone, though.
