(I did a search and could not find a post on this..so I went ahead and posted)

I was wondering if anyone had any info. on this new Boeing 717-200 order from Turkmenistan that was posted today on justplanes.com

Are these brand new from the factory? or leased from another?

Glad to see at least a small 717 order...I kinda liked this aircraft; serves a good purpose

Cheers from Miami!

I don´t know if they are new. But it looks like.
T5 seems to have a good market for those planes operating them in a comfortable C55Y55 configuration (let´s don´t talk about the service) to India or the neighbouring countries. It is great to see that at leat one airline recognizes the advantages of this plane...

Any order for the 717 is good news; now only if somebody would place an order for at least 25-50 with a similar number of options. Considering how the country is, I'm surprised that their president doesn't have his face on the tails of their a/c, his mug is everywhere else in the country.

Waiting for Germanwings to fall in love with them  Big thumbs up. Also, 55C/55Y, strange as that is the normal number of seats anyway

The C seats are probably the front half of a coach cabin sold at a higher price, in other words a marketing gimmock.

Probably not a gimmick, probably they don't sell the middle seats on the 3 side up front. Probably also a couple extra inches of pitch. Very european style to do that

Turkmenistan Airlines (T5) Adds Two More Boeing 717-200s to Its Fleet
Monday October 11, 12:01 am ET
http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/041011/sfm045_1.html

LONG BEACH, Calif., Oct. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA - News) and Turkmenistan Airlines recently finalized a definitive agreement for two Boeing 717-200 airplanes valued at $80 million at current list prices.

The airplanes will be delivered during August 2005. They will join Turkmenistan's fleet of passenger airplanes, which is currently five 717-200s, three 737-300s, and four 757-200s. The airline will operate the 717s primarily on domestic routes.

"The 717 is an excellent airplane which has helped us to complete our plan to replace Soviet-built airplanes with Boeing airplanes," said Baymurat Bayryev, chief executive officer of Turkmenistan Airlines. "Our passengers enjoy the comfort and innovative features that make travel on the Boeing 717 a great flying experience, and this is one of the reasons for adding more 717s to our fleet."

Turkmenistan Airlines' fleet modernization plan started in 1992 when the airline became the first in the Commonwealth of Independent States to order from Boeing.

"The 717 provides on-time departures for passengers and outstanding fuel economy and low operating costs for airlines," said Marlin Dailey, vice president of Sales, Europe & Central Asia, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "Turkmenistan Airlines has experienced the airplane's tremendous benefits, and this order is a reaffirmation of the Boeing 717's success in Turkmenistan Airline's operation."

The environmentally friendly 717-200, which reaches five years in revenue service on Oct. 12, brings full-size jetliner comfort, low operating costs and a dispatch reliability of better than 99 percent for operators worldwide. Boeing has received firm orders for 169 717s and delivered 134 717 airplanes.

This is great news, just wish some other airlines would follow the lead of AirTran, Midwest and Turkmenistan and buy the 717 instead of the small jets. It's a proven airplane with the economics that surpass the competition.

Best hope right now is that the GermanWings thing works out because LH is ready to order if their numbers look good.

Actually C55/Y55 means pitch forward of the overwing is like 33-34". Pitch the overwing is around 30-31". So there is a difference over a "marketing gimmock".

Well, I guess my cynicism has led me to a false conclusion. I certainly hope for more orders soon, though (*cough* Northwest *cough*).

Increased activity prompts Boeing 717 push

Boeing remains optimistic about the potential of the Boeing 717 and is eyeing up to 60 sales for the model over the next two years as it ramps up its marketing presence in Europe. The Boeing 717 has been in service for just under five years and Boeing currently has 167 firm orders for the type, enough to fuel the production lines for “two or three years,” according to Boeing 717 programme manager Patrick McKenna.
Speaking at the European Regions Airline Association’s (ERA) general assembly, the Boeing VP and general manager for the 717 programme said: “There is certainly a lot of activity in the market for 100-seaters and there certainly hasn’t been this much activity for a long time.” He adds: “We are talking to half a dozen customers and could bring in 25-30 sales from two or three customers in the next couple of months and a similar number, maybe more, next year.”
McKenna explains that this year’s potential deals are formed from “a couple” of 10 to 15-strong aircraft deals, “a couple” of two to three aircraft deals and “a couple” of larger orders in line for next year.
He says that Boeing is “talking to Germanwings about putting a couple of aircraft in there” and notes that this could boost the type’s European popularity, in turn boosting the manufacturer’s support presence. The manufacturer is on the verge of launching two new marketing campaigns in the region.
“If we’re successful in getting a couple of aircraft in there, the aircraft will sell itself. If we get them booked you can catch the interest of other operators,” says McKenna. Responding to the competitive efforts of both Bombardier and Embraer with the C Series and Embraer 195 respectively McKenna says: “You have to keep in mind that these are aircraft on paper founded on hopes and wishes, but we are here and have had the aircraft out there for five years.”
But he adds the new programmes reinforces the global potential of the 100-seat market, which Boeing places at around 1,000 aircraft over the next ten years and a further 2,500 in the following ten.

Well, the article in reply 18 seems to confirm that Boeing remains confident in the 717 for the time being.

I understood that in addition to Midwest and AirTran (and now Turkmenistan again), Bangkok Airways also had 2 717's on backorder?




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

The press release is dated 10/01, McKenna talks about getting a few into GermanWings, AeBal has already leased two to them. I wish them all the good fortune, especially the Long Beach folks. I hope LH comes through after they see the numbers @ GermanWings.
