Can anybody enlighten me on this one? I have a lot of sympathy for the B717 (not that I've ever flown one, it's just one of those planes that you instinctively like). I know it was designed for short, frequent hops, but I'm quite curious to find out how far it can go with a full pax load. Who can illustrate me with a city pair? Thanks.

Actually, the published range of the 717-200 is approx 1400nm. There is a HGW variant which has been designed (but never built) that is supposed to have a 2050nm range. The 717-300, if built, would have the same range, both standard and High Gross Weight (HGW) variants.
Those who fail to learn history are doomed to repeat it in summer school.
