Kathmandu,Nepal: Delta Air Lines continues to hold the title of the world's largest airline fleet, as of January 2024, with a total of 978 mainline aircraft. This information is based on publicly available data and industry reports, including Wikipedia and Planespotters.net.

It's important to note that "largest airline" can be measured in several ways, including:

  • Fleet size: Delta currently leads in this category, followed by American Airlines with 951 aircraft (as of September 2023).
  • Passengers carried: American Airlines currently holds the top spot, followed by Ryanair and Delta.
  • Revenue: Delta ranks first in terms of revenue, assets value, market capitalization, and brand value.

Delta's fleet primarily consists of Airbus and Boeing aircraft, with a strong presence in narrow-body models like the Airbus A220 and Boeing 717 for domestic and shorter international routes. They also boast the largest fleets of the Airbus A330 among US airlines and hold the top spot for Boeing 757 and 767 passenger configurations globally.

While Delta holds the current crown for fleet size, the airline industry remains dynamic. Mergers, acquisitions, and fleet modernization strategies can shift the landscape in the future. It's worth noting that American Airlines continues to closely trail Delta in fleet size, and other competitors like United Airlines and Emirates also maintain significant fleets.

Additional authorized details:

  • Delta operates hubs in Atlanta, Detroit, Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York-JFK, Salt Lake City, and Seattle.
  • The airline serves over 300 destinations in 52 countries.
  • Delta employs over 80,000 people worldwide.
