Hello, In this year United has overtaken Aeroflot in the no. of aircrafts. Know United has 632 aircrafts as Aeroflot has 625. I wanted to know will United be able to be at the first possision. Uniteds service is not very good. Same thing happened with PAN AM and TWA. They were also one of the biggest but couldnt keep up. United has a bad inflight service( my thinking). regards Kabir Taneja

RE: Worlds biggest airlines.. As i read, BA is still the biggest airline in the world.
RE: Worlds biggest airlines.. When it comes to the largest airline in the world the interesting statistic is who carries the most passengers. Delta airlines carried 117 million passengers last year and is thereby the largest airline in the world
RE: Worlds biggest airlines.. BA is the largest international airline, ie has the largest networl of intercontinental flights. The American majors such as United and Delta pull many of their passenger figures from their domestic market, which is vast in the US.

RE: Worlds biggest airlines.. I guess Aeroflot will not be able to take the first place in this race. There is so many rivals in Russia today. It will be interesting to see if some other airline will take the lead in Russia (it probably takes some time...)
RE: Worlds biggest airlines.. Now Aeroflot is a small-medium airline with only more than 110 planes. Smaller but much more effective, competitive and western style. It can compete with anyone.
RE: Worlds biggest airlines.. The full name of the new Aeroflot is Aeroflot Russian International Airlines. I hope the newly born version of Aeroflot will be a success. Good luck to them.
RE: Worlds biggest airlines.. They have just dropped the "international" name. Now Russian Airlines to remark the importance of their domestic market, which has risen this year due to the improvement of the economic conditions which has made more people to fly. They get the 11 per cent of the total market over there.

RE: Worlds biggest airlines.. "American" is now the worlds largest airline, due to their take-over of TWA. The two combined now means that American airlines has 900 aircraft in service.."replacing United airlines and gaining control of over a quarter of the US market."
