    Interesting, but how generally are conclusions come to over who is the largest airline in the industry? Revenue passenger mile was how I thought it was done?

      There is no one indicator, Saab. You have to look at a variety of factors and really think hard about the answers to each one. RPM/RPK is merely another indicator. Although, I would tend to say stock market capitalisation is a reasonably good choice, because it takes into account all the other indicators to a greater or lesser extent.

      As for basing it on revenue or any other yardstick alone - it is only muppets and simplistic journalists who will look at it that way!

        Sorry Preston, I don't actually know. I just went up there to see what was going on and to avoid the food prices downstairs after arriving on bmi from LHR.

            No !! I cannot vote because I would only have one vote and I am spoilt for choice, there are so many types I like. My least favourite is the B737, but I also like some you have not mentioned such as the Avro RJ/BAe 146 and the Fokker 27/50.
            I have flown in all the Boeings apart from the 757 and the 777, the only Airbus I've tried is the 320, I am also a fan of the MD82 and the DC9.

                    Favourate aircraft

                    Hi All,

                    My favourite so far is the A330. I flew it on Malaysian Airlines from Kuala Lumpur to Brisbane Australia and back...and i also like the looks of the aircraft although i must say that the A319 is very quiet in the cabin, flew it several times on Air France's local routes (Marseille - Paris - Nice)

                    How do you guys add a logo next to your nick? sorry i'm a new kid on the block

                            When did u fly to BNE,
                            because MAS dont operate A330 on the Kuala Lumpur - Brisbane route. They used to operate B772, but now they use B744. So i dont know why u flew an A330

                              Dartie,
                              That was back in late 1997. I flew on the 777 of MAS aswell but that was from KUL to AMS

                                OK, I have just never seen a A330 at Brisbane Airport in the MAS livery. But I believe you after all you were on the flight LOL!!!

                                    If we really want to confirm go to either the MAS website or the BAC website.

                                    Malaysia Airlines: www.malaysiaairlines.com
                                    Brisbane Airport Coroperation: www.bne.com.au

                                    or ring them up. But lets forget it, im sure ur not blind and u knew what aircraft it was LOL

                                      Adrian, AA is currently referred to as the world's largest airline. I'm not sure how many Euro-destinations they have, but I'm sure it's more than UA who only has six: LHR, AMS, BRU, MUC, FRA, and CDG. They withdrew from DUS and MXP not too long ago.

                                        Interestingly enough Greekdude, AA seem to have left a few of the European destinations I thought they flew. Currently they fly to London (LHR/LGW), Mancheser, Glasgow, Brussels and Rome. I thought they operated to Lisbon, Dublin etc also.
                                        Thanks anyway.

                                          They don't fly into CDG anymore? My father flew them out of CDG in the mid 90's.
