Interesting, although I haven't a clue.
They've recently let it be known that they are, once again, looking to purchase NEW a/c, and have asked Airbus and Boeing to outline the options.
In that sense, perhaps the 717 isn't so unlikely.
Ryanair have identified 'servicing costs' as quite a big priority, which is why they are apparently looking again at brand-new a/c (as well as the fact that prices are now beginning to look more attractive).
Purely from an enthusiast's point of view, I would like to see some no-frills airlines opt for the A320; I had a great time on Jetblue last summer!

Fact is that the 30 ex-AA 717's are not yet placed with a new customer (or not announced). It could be Ryanair or another airline like Aeromexico or another that is interested in the 717, who knows. I am wondering why Boeing hasn't make an announcement if they know where this 717's will go...
