Boeing 737-800

TOTAL FLEET: 7,381 +0.3%

The most popular aircraft in the U.S. Fleet in 2019 was the Boeing 737-800 with 826 units ahead of the Boeing 737-700 (579 units) and the Airbus A320ceo (559 units).

In 2019, the U.S. commercial aircraft inventory included 7,381 aircraft, up from 7,356 aircraft in 2018 (+25/+0.3%). The 2019 inventory consisted of 4,042 narrow-body jets (54.8%), 1,657 regional jets (22.4%), and 1,232 wide-body jets (16.7%). The remaining 450 aircraft were turboprops, business jets and piston-engine aircraft.

Of the 7,381 aircraft in the U.S. inventory, 3,301 or 44.7% were manufactured by Boeing, 1,677 or 22.7% by Airbus, 9,20 or 12.5% by Bombardier, 804 or 10.9% by Embraer, 289 or 3.9% by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing), and 246 or 3.3% by Cessna with 12 other manufacturers accounting for the remaining 144 aircraft.

The most popular aircraft in the inventory remains the Boeing 737-800 with 826 units (827 in 2018) ahead of the Boeing 737-700 (579 units vs. 586 in 2018), and the Airbus A320ceo (559 units vs. 521 in 2018). In 4th place, we have the Airbus A321ceo (424 vs. 398 in 2018), an aircraft that has moved rapidly up the list in recent years. The A321 (both ceo and neo) has been widely used as replacement model for aging Boeing 757s. The Boeing 757-200 takes 5th place (398 vs. 397) ahead of the Bombardier CRJ200, Embraer E175, Airbus A319ceo, Boeing 737-900ER, and Cessna 208B.

In 2019, the A330-900 entered the U.S. fleet for the very first time as four units were delivered to Delta Air Lines. Delta will add another 31 A330-900s to its fleet in 2020 and beyond, all equipped with Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines.
