I've noticed a discussion topic re: the B717 & AA, what about the A318's & for that matter the B757-300 (which I believe they have ordered??? correct me if I am wrong!). Will AA (if they get control of TWA?) keep the A318 order? My thoughts are they won't? Instead they would probably keep the B717's (Impulse in Australia would love more but they can't get any until 2002 now!) because they fly MD80's & the B717 is already in service with TWA. So there would be some commonality there!

AA has the F100 and would get the A318 and the 717 from TWA. Question is, why are they doing this to themselves when they fly all-Boeing? They need the 737-500 or 600. It fits in better with their fleet of 737-800's, 757s, 767s and 777s. But then, AA has been making bad decisions about their fleet lately. It explains the A300's and MD-11's they bought...
