717fan, do you really think so? Boeing might have known that AA was thinking about retiring the B717 but this retirement still affects the line. This was the only big carrier operating the B717 and now they drop it - that really hurts the image. I think there will be some re-considerations concerning the B717 line - you can´t tell me that a 1.5 frame production a month makes sense. The order book isn´t really that fattest, the only order still pending is Midwest - and they think about taking a number if not all AA B717. That leaves only the AirTran order on the line (something around 20 frames), not really much. So far Hawaiian and Impulse have yet to place their add-on orders...
