2002 Order For The 717?

Thu Dec 27, 2001 12:46 am

Which airlines do you see ordering the 717 in 2002?
For me you can see the following:
-Midwest Express
-NWA
-Hawaiian/Aloha
-China Eastern
-Alitalia
-Aeromexico

and some smallers like Olympic Aviation, Aserca, etc.

Midwest Express: yes, but only when they get better terms.

NWA: big NO. No money and the new RJs (Embraer 170-195 and 728/928/X28JET offer more than the B717)

Hawaiian/Aloha: only when they get their merger approved.

China Eastern: No, not a third narrow-body type. More likely the A318 or B737-600.

Aliatlia: No, A318/319 fleet mix plus some large RJs. But no money.

Aeromexico: Could be, but first CINTRA has to sort things out.

Olympic Aviation: NO GO. Olympic has other priorities at the moment: survival.

Aserca: Only when they find the money.

Seems like a slow year for the B717-200.

Sorry Flying-Tiger, But if NWA orders anything regional for the mainline fleet, It will be the 717.

God I hate second guessing or rumors...

I almost gather that AA painted some 717's in full AA colors could be a good sign for the 717. I believe that at one time AA said they would not order the 717 further after the AA/TWA merger. AA may turn out liking the 717 as a MD-80 replacement for those routes that the MD-80 covers. A lot of people think a smaller 737 as the other candidate. We're talking AA so most likely we will not see an A318 in AA colors.

I like all airplanes so I could care less what I saw in AA colors whether it is the unlikely A318, 737 (600-700) or the 717. For the sake of the Long Beach workers jobs though it would be cool for AA to order the 717 because an order of 150-250 717's from AA would keep the production lines going.

No way for Alitalia.

After they will get money with the recapitalization they will order a regional jet, probably Embraer 170 and 195 in order to have a RJ family from 70 till 100 seats (now they also have ERJ-145). In this case they don't need B717 and A318.

Some of the carriers that I can see ordering the 717 in the future.
American - Maybe 2 or 3 dozen more on top of the 30 from TWA, to start replacing the Fokker 100s.
Delta - An excellent replacement for their 737-200s.
Hawaiian - Of course. They have 13 & they want more.
Midwest Express - Yep. At least 20 ships for them.
Northwest - They'll probably start with a small order, as their DC-9s can't last forever. The A318 is too heavy.
Just my educated guesses, folks. Regards.

JetBlue320, not be too sure about your statements. I see a very real chance, especially for the 928JET, to win this order. This plane is part of a family, has a big potential for a further strech which is already evaluated and is 3-5 mio BUCKs cheaper to buy than the B717-200 but is lighter and offers a wider cabine.

First, the economy has to get back up before orders become more commonplace.

Secondly, DL won't order the 717. If anything, the 737-200s will be replaced with the 737-600/700. Delta is moving to 3 fleet types, the 737, 757/767, and 777.

I had heard Saudi Arabian Airlines were interested in the 717 for regional operations any update on that.

I don't know. Saudia is not really satisfy with the MD90s. Because MD90s is having problems for landing/departing in some Saudi Airports that usually opb 732.

Boeing is now offering 717/736 to Saudia as a "compensation" I might say.

I could see NW getting the 712 over the Dornier 928/728/whatever. The 712 offers already guaranteed reliability and great fuel burn. Current operators are reporting about a 25% decrease in fuel burn than the DC9(If they operated them previously).

I have heard rumors about CoEx ordering the 711 lite if it is launched.

United has NEVER operated a DC-9 type. I don't see why they would now. They have the 319 for that.

There's another possible customer for the 717: Air Canada.

The 717 would be an excellent replacement for the 737-200s that AC eventually wants to get rid of. The same goes for the DC-9-30 as well.

But trouble is, I doubt that Air Canada will ever do this. It's probably more likely that it'll look at the A318, despite it being less economical to operate on short-haul routes than the 717. It seems to be a commonality thing (AC has A319s and A320s and is adding A321s to its fleet), and not to mention that it might be cheaper not to have to train pilots to use a completely new a/c when another more compatible a/c can be ordered.

Hi:

In my opinion, this airline are possible customers of the Boeing 717:

Midwest Express
Hawaiian/Aloha
AeroMexico

Northwest, will replace the DC-9 with A319. Aliatlia probably choose the A320 family for the MD-82, China Eastern is the same case, probably would choose the A319 or A320.

Qantas has been pushing an all-economy drive recently, and has been adding DASH-8s to it's QantasLink subsidiaries.

There is also the question of expanding NZ operations, and the 717 has been rumoured to be a reasonable fit over there. There have been rumors for about a year now of possibly moving the existing 717s to NZ for a reborn QFNZ.

The 717s continue to serve QF very well on it's holiday routes from the southern capitals north to the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, as well as servicing Tasmanian cities. It is a great replacement here for the 142s and 143s previously operated on the routes.

They are staffed by Impulse/Airconnex workers, providing a degree of operational savings to QF as well.

With the arrival through early 2002 of the fmr AA order for 738s, older 733s are being retired -- perhaps an opening there for 717s.

So -- wouldn't be shocked to hear of a handful of new 717s in the next couple of years for QF, although would think they're fairly well set for the next year or so.

David,

"Austrian" in fact nowadays includes Austrian Airlines, Tyrolean, Lauda Air and Rheintalflug and I guess they will make one order for all of them. That effectively rules out the stand-alone Boeing 717-200 since they need something that could replace Tyrolean DHC8-100s/300s, Tyrolean/Austrian Fokker 70s. Austrian group also has some "criticla" airports like Innsbruck or Altenrhein from where a B717 cannot operate.

So what is a likely choice ? Tyrolean and Lauda have already CanRJs, but although Tyrolean is a loyal Bombardier customer I doubt that they will go for a CanRJ200/700/900 solution, having in mind that they operate the much more comfortable Fokker 70 and probably will not go back to a flying pencil. Rheintalflug has ERJ145s and options on a ERJ170, but those were ordered before Austrian took Rheintalflug over.

My guess is they go for the FairchildDornier family and maybe keep the Lauda Air 737-600s for the upper end of the range.

JAS, Indian Airlines, Austrian, Aeroflot, Varig, Aerolinas Argentinas, United?

JAS: I don't think they're in a hurry to buy 717s. They still have some relatively new MD90s.

Indian Airlines: The smallest jet is 737-200, 737-600/-700 would fit better rather than 717.

Aeroflot: Do they really need the 717?

VARIG: I don't really see why VARIG would like to get 717s. Their regional subsidiary has the jet like ERJ or 73G. I don't see any points having 717 between ERJ and 73G.

Aerolineas Argentinas/Austral: I don't know about them. They're having financial crisis.

United: If they really want 717, I would suggest that the route that's going to be opb 717 (IF UA buys them) should transfer to UA Express.

Air Canada: Who knows? They're interested in 777s a while ago.

I would love to confirm what you heared but I doubt it. SV doesnt purchase planes out of the blue they usually make a fatty order every decade at least. they just completed thier fleet (61 acft.. IMO not even close to enough). They have MD-90 doin all thier short routes, really dont see the 717 in that! I would love to see it and some 736.

I had heard the same comment a couple of years ago that SV was interested in the 717 to replace the remaining 732 fleet. Seems the MD-90 can't operate out of some of the 732 markets. I recall they also looked at the BAe ARJ. I've heard nothing since.

I think that Airtran will convert some more options to orders on the 717 this year, the same for Hawaiian/Aloha. I also heard that SV is evaluating the 717, but this could take some time...
Transcend Executive Airlines from Switzerland said that they will start operation from GVA and ZRH with 2 717, but this was before 11/9. Has anybody heard something since then? Aermexico is for me also a very,very likely candidate for a 2002 order.
Boeing said that they have strong interest from China for the 717...
And... Bangkok Air has said in a Swiss Travel Magazine that they will introduce 1 more 717 in 2002.

Indianicworld is correct. The 717 needs a large order from a respected world airline. This will give it respectability and other orders will come easier.

QF717

Qantas will most likely retire the 717's when the 737-800's arrive. They show no sign of ordering anything but 737's. If anything, the 737-300’s will be moved to New Zealand to join existing Ex Ansett 737 to fly domestic routes.

I attach an article from another forum. I do not guarantee it is correct but the guy seems to know what he's talking about:

"Impulse (pre-QF) had options on another 11 aircraft. Impulse/Qantas have a choice on where they can get these 6 aircraft from. Pembroke (big leasing company) already supplies a few B717's to Impulse and they have a total of 21 on order, so Impulse if they like may lease another 6 from them. Another option is take 6 aircraft from the TWA/AA order. TWA ordered 50, but since AA purchased TWA it appears they will only take 20-30 aircraft. Qantas B738 were planned for AA so this maybe where the 6 B717's will come from.

The next 6 aircraft will be in a 2 class seating config, ie will have business class, so you can start guessing what routes they will operate. I have also heard where the new base(s) will be, the choice(s) may surprise a few. There are no plans to operate the B717 in the west.

Once the xmas/new year season is over there will be an announcement. From what I've been told B1900 pilots have already be asked to bid for slots on the new aircraft, with the first batch heading over to the USA in late Jan 2002."

But not necessarily talking about big orders. Most big carriers which would have some kind of interest in this type (NW, AA, US, AC) are really low on cash and won´t place any big order in the near term. More likely are a few smaller deals, maybe the Hawaiian/Aloha add-on if the merger goes ahead or the MidWest order. But still, how big is their yearly production with a 1.5-plane rate per month? 18 frames... close to nothing. They are hoping for better timrs but if the economy does not improve over the next months (and thus orders) they will (have to) take another look on it.

About Impulse: interesting that they are likely to get additional B717-200. As far as I know Dornier´s 728/928JET are the front-runners in Qantas´ RJ tender. Maybe a short-term solution or the positioning of a second low-cost brand in Australia?

I think Qantas has no immediate need for new RJ's. I know they have been evaluating the RJ together with BA, but that was long time ago..
In my opinion they have other problems to work on at the moment and I know they are happy with the 717's..
so its logical that they want to buy more.

Flying-Tiger,
I think you may find QF are looking at the 928/728/528 as a replacement for the BA146 and maybe to replace a few Dash 8's operating out of YSSYto regional cities(ie YSSY-YSCB, YSSY-YSCH). The 728 would make a good replacement for the BA146 operation in West OZ. However I don't think there will be any orders in the short term.
QF717,
I to wouldn't be shocked to see a few more 717's in QF colours this year. The 717 seems to be going well operating the holiday routes. Maybe when the new 737-800s's arrive some of the older 300's and 400's my go over to NZ.

Did AM already place an order for the 717 ?

I f they do it, I wont be surprised if they cancel it or delay it.

Besides the MD-80 series and DC-9 are quite suitable for AM, I don´t see the need of the 717, perhaps the 319 or 320 for certain routes, but the MD´s are OK

I know that AM is beginning to replace its DC-9 (The first one is going to Allegro). They show much interest in the 717. Someone said in this forum that AM is interested in 10 717 and I heard that from other sources too. I don't think that AM is getting A32X because they are a longtime an faitful MD/Boeing customer. More likely that Mexicana orders some more A32X.

Ok once again let me say:
1. Northwest and Air Canada WILL NOT ORDER ANY 717s. THEY ARE AN AIRBUS SHORTHAUL FAMILY!
2. Aeromexico has been a long time RUMOR to order the 717, but nothing yet.
3. Boeing kept the 717 in production because of several reasons, 2 of them probably being Air Tran and Hawaiian pressuring them to keep it open and the fact that the union in Long Beach held a press confrence on all the local networks about Boeing possibly cancelling the 717.
4. There is no new orders that I have heard, but Hawaiian would like to get up to 7 more 717s for the fleet.

my 2 cent rumors

AA--quietly parking 717 with possible return to lessor. Heard a definate no on more orders from them (several people said it on this and other boards..I know they have parked some 717s)

HA-hahahahahahaha sorry...HA has been for sale for a while (or at least the sign on the corporate office door had OBO on it...now they have a deal) Merger will most likely go through, since AQ can prove a heavy debt load with no real assets. If the merger goes through, the Star-Bulletin said something like 5 more 717 to replace 737-200s at the end of lease. After interisland stabilization, most likely 757/767 mix to service West Coast/South Pacific destinations.

Regards to the 428 production...yeah it was cancelled...but YX still ordered more 328Jets, at full price (reported by a trade magazine as above $12 million an airframe)

Airtran...yes...probably if they see growth as projected they will need more aircraft.

Boeing Capitol--no...they are trying to place 717s as AA does not renewal the contract (again that's a rumor of return). Some people speculate the this is one reason production wasn't cancelled; it would shoot boeing in the foot too.

ouch.

RE: 2002 Order For The 717?

Qantas is actually very likely to place its order mid-next year. BA and QF had both popstponed their RJ decisions by about 6 months because of the new situation: Ansett disappeared together with its regional affiliates, BA decided to revamp its regional network, thus impactiung on the RJ split. The order is coming, sometime next year. 717fan, just don´t think that an airline has no need for a plane just because it isn´t a B717! Nothing against you...

Skyways actually pays less for its new 328JETs, this was hammered out as compensation for the 428JET cancellation. However this only applies to the firm orders as far as I know. The options are "regular" price although it won´t be the list price.

>>1. Northwest and Air Canada WILL NOT ORDER ANY 717s. THEY ARE AN AIRBUS SHORTHAUL FAMILY! <<

That isn't entirely true. If I remember correctly, NW DID order either 10 or 15 757-300s this year. That would mean that they're not entirely Shorthaul Airbus. Don't forget that they still have about 150 or so DC9s to replace.

I've not said that they has no need for RJ's. I mean that new RJ's is not an urgent need for QF.
By the way I do not only love the 717....I am interested in aviation...

Maybe Qantas will order more 717.
