I really think that it is a good plane as well. I have never had the pleasure of flying it, but it does sound good, from a technical viewpoint and from a passenger's view point. Airlines must think it just does not fit into their fleet plan. It seems like a great plane though for lots of passengers but not a lot of cargo. Maybe it would be good for European charter airlines. I don't really know a lot about how they do cargo though, so maybe not. Not to get this thread off on a tangent, but I think that the 739 and 717 also fit into the category of good airplanes but that don't fit into fleet plans. I have had the pleasure of flying on a 739 (also of CO) and it was comfortable. It was nothing special, but it certainly was not bad. Still good I thought.
