2 of the 4 Bangkok Air 717s will go to Spanair, with the first registered as EC-KNE (ex HS-PGP). Will the 3rd an 4th also go to Spanair?
Thanks

I saw a photo in the February issue of Airliner World of a Bangkok Air 717 at Glasgow in its way to USA to put it into storage.

Don't remember the registration but seems that the information was true.

Regards,

Gerard

How many 717s does Spanair flies now? I want to say 4, but I'm not certain of this.
My guess is that Spanair will take all 4 of Bangkok's 717s, that is if they're coming
off leases. And I'll be surprised if any 717s are in storage today. I would think AirTran
would want them.
Regards.

Time is running out to sit on one of those planes sadly. In Asia they were the only airline, now it seems I may have to go to the USA, Australia or Europe to actually have to sit in one Boeing 717

I would love to try a B717. Does Spanair have any specific routes that they normally operate on rather than routes that could be a MD80?
While on the subject of MD80's does anybody know the i.d of the all white MD80 which is parked very close to the dump at Barcelona? Its close to the 2 ex Tadair SA226's that are also dumped there!

What is the schedule for these planes leaving PG? My wife and I are flying them in April and I was hoping it would be a 717.  crossfingers

That's a Iberia MD88 EC-FIH had an incident with a vehicle last summer and the damages were BER. Now is de-engined and waiting for the scrapper...

The Barcelona - Zurich morning sole and daily link is operated with 717 equipment. Seville is very often served with 717 and, too, the Canary Islands.

Thanks, 717fan.
BTW, are you familiar with the 9 individual customers codes, on all 156 717s assembled?
I'm curious to know where the 30 -231s are. I think AirTtran has most of them, but not all.
Regards.

There are two B717´s in my log
EC-HNZ and
EC-HUZ.
Nice experience, both Aerolineas Baleares flights operated on Spanair schedules
from and to the Balearic islands and Barcelona.
There is a rather good chance on these services to catch the 717.

They were ordered by TWA, hence the -231 code.

As you said Airtran has some and some others went to Australia now operating with NJS/Qantaslink.
