I'll take some notes on your first two questions, and report back next week. As for #3, the max certificated landing weight is 110,000 lbs. AirTran operates them at a max landing weight of 104,000 for landing fee considerations.

Just some clarification on the max landing weights. According to the Boeing planning manual, the max landing weights are:
Basic airplane: 100,000 lbs. (110,000 lbs. MTOW) and 102,000 lbs. (114,000/116,000/118,000 lbs. MTOW)
HGW option: 110,000 (121,000 lbs. MTOW)

Looking at that chart you provided raises some interesting questions. I can give you the facts regarding the aircraft that I operate. Not all the numbers correspond to the chart. Here are the numbers for our aircraft--
Max Certificated Ramp Wt -- 122,000 (AirTran operates at 121,000)
Max Certificated Takeoff Wt -121,000 (AirTran operates at 120,000)
Max Certificated Landing Wt -110.000 (AirTran operates at 104,000)
*Note--AirTran weights are for operational reasons such as reduced fees, etc.
Max Zero Fuel Wt -- 96,000
Max Usable Fuel -- 24,609
So, our aircraft have the same Ramp, TO and LDG wts as the HGW option, but the same ZFW and usable fuel as the basic model. Typical Basic Empty Weights are around 67,300 lbs.

The Boeing numbers are the baseline numbers. I checked the documentation I got from a familarization course on the 717 and it does say that customers have the option to change things like the ZFW from the baseline numbers.
