Has anybody flew on a 717 in Europe? Was it good?
Do you see more 717 in Europe in the future?

Okay, here we go again. As wonderful as the B717 might be I don´t see a big market for it as the modern RJs currently develpped offer the same or even higher comfort levels at a lower weight and a higher degree of flexibility within the respective families. There might be some order from Europe but at the moment I couldn´t name any carrier.

Give it up, man. That plane is an orphan. It may last another year, but I think Boeing will very quicly change their minds on continuing production.

I personally think they are only allowing production to continue until they can find another use for the Long Beach facilities...

Have you flow on one? I have four times (TWA). It needs to be put to pasture. The DC-9 line should have folded long before this...

Flying-Tiger, wasn't the RJX project cancelled??
I have read some news about airlines seeking to new aircraft (A318/B717) due to the discontinue of their placed orders.

OO-VEG, you´re right. The Avro RJX project was cancelled, with the term "RJ" I refered to Regional Jets such as the CRJ700/900, Embraer 170,175,190,195 and the 728/928JET, not to the ARJX. The onlyairlines having placed orders for the ARJX were British European and Druk Air. The latter is known for looking at the A319 and large RJs to fulfill its future requirements, BE is said to be interested in additional Dash 8-Q400 and wants to make a new RJ decision in late 2002.

The other European 717 operator, beside Olympic Avtn, is Spanair´s regional franchisee AeBal (Aero Baleares).

And no, I, being the layman that I am, don´t see much of a market for the 717 in Europe: all major DC9/MD80 customers will phase out their fleets in the near future or already have done so (IB, AZ, SK, AY, KL...)
