I think the 717 will go well into the Delta fleet. They could replace the
old 737s with the 717 (i think they will also fit well with the MD88s and
the MD90s).


I've flown on 9V-SPK.

You guys are all 717 lovers...that airplane has no future. The Fokker 100 is a much better airplane, that's the one that should go back into production. I like the Fokker 100.

I also think the 717 would be a good fit into the Delta fleet. Concerning the remark about the F100 being better, it may be in some ways, but due to the fact that it has no exit aft of the wing, I would take the 717 any day. Also, I am a DC-9 lover.

The F100 is not even close to the caliber of
the B717! Do to the technology involved into
todays planes! I would take a B717 anyday, but
then again this statement is coming from a
guy who has never flown it or flown on either
ac so don't take it to personally!

On a seperate Note:
Alitalia SAS and some little Asian Carrier
are rumored to be possible order customers
this spring. Time will tell!

Shuttle By United will also be good with 717 due to the fact that their western routes are short to very-short huals.

I agree that the 717 would be an excellent plane for Shuttle by United, and any of the short-haul type operations like exist on the west coast. But considering that UA has an extensive fleet of 737s and is growing a fleet of A320s, I doubt they would want to add the 717 as well. I'm not certain, but I can't recall UA ever operating a DC-9 or MD-80 series airplane (maybe they did early on, I don't know). Airlines do sometimes make suprise moves, so you never know.

Also, using longer range aircraft like the 737-500 does make it easier to pull a faster turnaround, as they don't have to refuel at every stop, although this does mean that they're carrying around excess weight in fuel, something airlines generally don't like to do. But it's an option.
