Cyagen wroteColon54 planes (3x18 planes) seems to me like the upper realistic limit, let stretch it to 60 for pulp purposes.
72 planes is pushing it very hard, even for a 2 000 ft long Zep (600 meters).
Another thing to consider is that an aircraft carrier will take a lot punishment before being put out of action then a zep and can carry more armament.
One is not better than another, they just have a different role to play.
