I've heard some rumours that the following airlines would operate/order Boeing 717:
-Aeromexico
-Aloha Airlines
-Transcend Executive Airlines (Swiss Startup May02)
-Aserca Airlines

What do you think about?

Hi 717fan:

AeroMexico will introduces the new 717-200 because Boeing doesn't have the 737 NG which AeroMexico wants. Remember that the new mexican airline called VuelaMex pretends to fly with five Boeing 717-200.
In my opinion new operators for the 717 would be:

Aeropostal
Aserca
AMC Aviation
ALM Antillean Airlines
Spanair ( his subsidiary operates five 717-200)

Regards,
RJ_Delta.

The first two B717-200 for VuelaMex are ready for delivery in VuelaMex colours. VuelaMex is working on getting the upgrade of their air taxi license to full schedule airline to start service. They hope to get it by december, since the airliners are ready.

VuelaMex signed a contract with Pembroke Capital Aviaton to get 4 B717-23S that were originally destined to Aerolineas de Baleares (AEBAL / Spanair Link).

So Mexico will have the B717 in the skies soon.

AeroMexico won't get the B717 soon, since they don´t have enough money to do so. They are even loosing money. And since the sell of the ailine is not going to happend in the near future, AeroMexico will only get used MD80's and B767's for a while.

Actually, last I heard Aloha dropped any plans to purchase the 717. The reason? 1) Price and 2) They don't want to be like Hawaiian (true story)

Aloha is now considering the RJX-100 to replace it's aging 737-200 fleet.

Aloha 737-200!!  Wink/being sarcastic

National Airlines is looking for a new airplane on its short routes and it could be a 717. It should be a 717. What do you think?

I don't think that aeropostal will order the 717 any time soon, they have plans to buy two DC 9-51's from Finnair next year.

Forget Spanair. They have plans to drop their B717-200 fleet in favour of smaller regioanl jets which fit their structure better. Same could apply for Olympic Aviation.

Hmmmm....

AirTran wants 757s.

National wants 717s.

Maybe a marriage is in the works.
