Hello, can anybody please tell me what type of engines power the Boeing 717, and how many lbs of thrust they produce? Also, has anybody flown on them and taken any notice of their power, how well they accelerate on takeoff, and climb, etc? Thankyou for your time

I took a 717 ride in January on TWA and I was quite pelased with the performance of the airplane. The seats were a little hard but not awful for such a short flight.
My first flight was nearly empty and we were off the runway in St. Louis in virtually no time. I'm amazed by the quietness and power of the BR715s on that airplane. The air-conditioning system is also quite an amazing feat. They will be well-liked at AA.
