Here's some recent news about the Fokker 100 fleet:
Air Niugini will get three additional Fokker 100s. 11471/PT-WHL was recently returned by TAM to the lessor and ferried to WOE and will soon be delivered to Air Niugini
Quote: TAT INDUSTRIES and MOSCOW SKY have initiated the conversion of three Fokker 100 into VIP aircraft. The conversion will result in luxurious seating, beds, IFE and catering possibilities for up to 30 passengers. Each of the three aircraft will feature customised design and harmony.
The conversion is being executed in Dinard, France at TAT INDUSTRIES’ facilities and its completion, along with EASA certification, is expected to be finalised by the end of this year.
MOSCOW SKY represents a group of Russian and European aviation companies including aircraft and helicopter operators (Meridian Air Company, International Jet Management), air charter brokers and consulting firms.
International Jet Management (IJM) in Vienna, Austria will commercially operate the aircrafts under their Aircraft Operation Certificate (AOC).
The aircraft involved are three ex AA/ JetsGo Fokker 100s, all currently at DNR.

Wow, it appears the Fokkers have certainly not lost their appeal after 9 years since the collapse of Fokker.
They are still highly sought after, and KLM recently announced they will be keeping them for a while.
