My guess it that they'll either end up @ FL (like most 717s that come onto the open market) or perhaps Germanwings will pick them up. The OA 717s are leased (Bavarian and Pembroke, IIRC), so either the lessors will lease them to FL or Germanwings, or perhaps since they only have a small number of 717s they lease out (They still have unfilled orders for 717s that they haven't even used yet.), they may sell them outright to FL or another operator.

A little bit off topic, but do you have more information about A Volar Aerolineas? How serious is this project?
Since mexican government is forcing the sale of CINTRA group next year, in order to 'open' a little more the domestic market and market share, the mexican government is giving authorization to several airlines including AeroTropical, Nova Air, Republic Air, Mesoamericanas, A Volar Aerolíneas and two more pax airlines along with one cargo carrier which so far names haven't been disclosed. A Volar was authorized last October they will start this year with 3 aircraft. And I've heard they were searching for MD90s or 717s and the last option was 737s. Hopefully they get MD90s or 717s!
