What avionics display suite (i.e. Honeywell, Collins,etc) is installed in the Boeing 717 that provides the PFD, MFD, and EICAS display? Also what type of technology is it? (i.e. CRT, flat panel LED)

It's the exact same system that's in the MD-11. On the overhead panel, were there were supposed to be switches for three systems (three engines) one of the switches is omitted.

It's Honeywell and I believe it's flat panel LCD.

MD-11 on the left, MD-90 on the right. Same?

What I'm sure Md95 was talking about are the MD-90s that were specially outfitted with the Honeywell 6-display EFIS for Saudi Arabian Airlines. You are right, though; the vast majority of the -90s out there have the standard MD-88 flight deck with very few modifications.

B-52s don't take off. They scare the ground away.

Another "commonality" between the 717 and Saudi Arabian MD-90 is that both use the Honeywell VIA system (Versatile Integrated Avionics).

The MD-11's displays are CRT... otherwise, very similar.

The six display "screens" are LCD's and the MCDU's(2) are CRT's. The whole suite is Honeywells. Thus ends the alphabet soup description from the tech. manual

The system has more in comon with the 737 and 777 than an MD bird...

Honeywell’s Versatile Integrated Avionics (VIA) platform is an LRU-based system derivative of the Airplane Information Management System developed for the Boeing 777. Certified on the Boeing 737NG for flight display functions, VIA is additionally certified on Boeing 717 and MD10 aircraft for flight management, flight displays and fault warning. With a common hardware/software architecture, VIA is configurable to meet the needs of a variety of avionics applications. Lockstep processing for cycle-to-cycle concurrent monitoring and an ARINC 659 fail-passive communications path are among the features that assure high integrity processing for flight critical functions. The VIA architecture provides support without the expense of hardware voting monitors. Robust time and space partitioning (provided by hardware, ARINC 653 O/S and qualified tools) give VIA the flexibility to integrate multiple flight functions in one box.
