The planes I am talking about are everyday passenger plane's, not fighters. Do you know what the angle needs to be for it to create enough lift so the plane can fly?

The angle of attack airplanes fly at while cruising is called the optimum angle of attack (around 4 degrees) which meets the max.(L/D).
