American Airlines – World’s largest airline

American Airlines has taken the pandemic as an opportunity to re-emerge as the world’s largest airline, a title it has traded back and forth with competitors during the last few years.

“American has been aggressive,” said John Grant of aviation data firm OAG. “They are very lucky in the United States to have a large domestic market."

The Dallas Fort Worth based airline is running about 85% of the number of flights it ran in 2019 this summer and 80% as many passenger seat miles, key figures in the airline industry.. But by comparison Delta’s operation is still down about 32% from 2019, and United is running an even more conservative schedule with a 40% schedule reduction compared with 2019.
