I'm using a mixture of everything. Boeing, Airbus, McDonnell-Douglas, Fokker, I even got some Tupolevs in my fleet. Just what aircraft is best suitable for a route or a number of routes.

The A320 is a maker of $
the A380 is not  :o :-\

Right now in PW # 1577 (Jet Canada Express)

our A320-200 placed on route YYZ-LAX gives us $201,000

That explains of why we had 44 Dash 8 Q400s and
41 CRJ-900LRs

WE have one 77W

A319 = Short haul. Typical routes Ex. (BOS-IAD)
A330-300,200 = Medium - Long haul EX. (BOS-MAN) (DFW-HNL)
Boeing 757-300,200 = High capacity routes mainly domestic (BOS-LAX) (BOS-SDQ)
Boeing 747-400 = Long Haul (BOS-NRT) (BOS-LHR)
Boeing 777-200,300 = Long Haul (BOS-GRU) (BOS-DXB) (BOS-CAI)

I'd prefer both Airbus and Boeing only though for start up I always go with BAe ATP and Super 748s or maybe EMBs and CASAs as we can't immediately afford to buy nor lease either Airbus or Boeing in the beginning months.

among the airbus aircraft I choose Airbus A320-200 and A 319s, the narrowbody short-medium range planes, very good for high passenger traffic short-medium range. From Boeing well I like the 737s classic 300/400/500 they're also good but with lower offered seats than A320s. usually The first jet airliner I would go for are Boeing because they're less expensive than any Airbus except A319s and other shorter variants. Boeing is also my choice for long haul trans continental flights either 767-200ER or the 777-200ER I don't really fancy the 300ERs of Boeing, they have great seat capacity but shorter range. I always look at range than seat capacity for long hauls. I also choose Boeing 757s for medium range international flights in tan-them with Airbus A320s. So mostly I like the Boeing aircraft however note that the largest no. of fleet will always be Airbus particularly A320s. Thus, Airbus and Boeing really suites for me.

btw I like this topic  :)

Chose Other..
Why?
Here is my preferred "Pecking Order" for my Planes
  Bombardier CRJ-x00 (I use mostly 200LR's)
  Boeing 737-9ER (Regional routes out of range by CRJ's)
  Boeing 757-300 (Regional routes needing the capacity. Think Japan...)
  Boeing 767-2ER (Intercontinental routes not needing the capacity/range of the 777)
  Boeing 777-2LR (Longest range flights that only this can complete)
  Boeing 777-3ER (Intercontinental routes needing the capacity)

I operate a mixed fleet.
Year in the game i am in is 1993.

ATR-72 for regional routes (less than 500 miles) to rural airports with less than 100.000 passengers.

737-500 for my African network. Small type with plenty of range. Will be replaced by either A319, 737-600 or 737-700 (i will choose when they are available).

A320-200 for most of my network. Carries more passengers than most other aircraft available, only aircraft in it's class that has more range is the 737-300. The 737-800 isn't available yet, but i will decide on a replacement when it is available.

757-200 for longhaul out of smaller hubs. Nothing else available with same range.

A310-300HGW for long haul. Cheaper than a 767-200ER, and slightly faster. Fulfills all my range requirements.

I am an Airbus guy and I voted for the top 2 because the Airbus short haul jets are much cheaper than the ones from boeing and they often offer similar speeds and ranges (not always I am aware) I tend to use Airbus A330-300 LRs on my long haul routes but sometimes i might need to get a 777 or 767 for the longer routes as I don't really want to use 340s as they(in real life) would look out of place with all my twin jets if I had a quad jet so really I only by the Boeing for aesthetics otherwise Airbus FTW

Embrear ERJ jets (170/175/190/195) all the way. Less is more. Less fuel consumption, less pricy, less passengers (comes with a lower turn time) and it gives you more profit. All I see is wins :P Well.. there's one "con"... you're quite vulnerable when it comes to competing with larger aircraft :-X

True :-X They come phased somewhere between 2003 and 2005 if I'm right. So yes, you got me another con there. But other than that they're awesome :D
