Hi,
Basicly, I won't to know if the MD80 range is still manufactured, or can you only order 717's?
Also, I'm guessing DC10's are to old to still be made, but what about the MD11's? Do they also come under boeing rule? Are the trijets dead?!?!

The MD-80's still live today in the form of the Boeing 717. The last DC-10 was built in 1989, and the last MD-11 was built by Boeing in 2001.

The short answer to your title question is No.

Boeing killed off MD-11 production shortly after it bought MDD.

The only MD-80 production that took place post-merger was for some remaining TW MD-80s that AA inherited.

DC-10 production ended long before Boeing bought MDD.

I'm not sure whether MD-90 production was killed off pre or post merger.

Quoting Lazyshaun (Thread starter):
can you only order 717's?

Except for some remaining 717 orders from existing carriers (mainly from FL & YX); Boeing is no longer accepting orders from new customers. The production line is scheduled to shut down in the summer of 2006.

Actually the 717 (a.k.a. MD-95), is similar in size to the DC-9-30.

Technically speaking they're all DC-9s, at least that's how they are rated by the FAA.

The DC-10 and Dc-9 are being built in a secret facility in China. Rumor has it that Northwest wants to replace its A330's with the Dc-10's and the A319's with the Dc-9. The order will be announced at the Paris Air Show.

Man, you are lazy! Where have you been, Shaun? With the exception of the 717, none of the other planes you have mentioned have been built for years. And there are plenty of links to the origins of the 717 and, for that matter, its recent demise.

Actually no they aren't, however they are all on the same type certifcate. I beleive it was the MD-88 and later variants that were no longer technically DC-9s

DC-9 type certificate. Note the box in upper right corner of 1st page.

I heard that Tupolev was also in the running for the DC9 replacement as well.

Production of the MD-11 ended in 2001.

Production of the DC-10 ended in 1984 over 20 years ago!!!!

Production of the L1011 ended in 1984. The Dc-10 lasted until 1989, when the last aircraft was delivered to Nigeria (AFAIK).

Makes you wonder, if they would reopen if a big order would be dropped? Not that I envision that to happen, or it would probably have been done a long time ago.

At this point, it's too late. The proverbial last call for additional/potential 717 customers was probably either late December 2004 or early January 2005.

Only 35 80s and 2 90's were ever built there. The last two were the 90's and they were delivered in 2001. Both are still in service in China. TWA flew five of the 80's msn53137-53141. I think they are still in service with AA. Spirit may have four more but I don't know what msn.

OK so let's split hairs, the -88,-90 and -95 aren't considered DC-9s by the government, they're still all variants of the DC-9. It's all semantics.
