do you think, the B717/MD95 will have any bright future, or do you think the A318 will win the race?
I think, it will be very difficult for the B717, because it is "all alone", with no similarities with the next bigger 737 Series.
This is the advantage for the A318, with its bigger brother A319-321.
Nevertheless, I hope the B717 will be a sucess, because its the last plane of McDonell-Douglas and the last plane with engines at the rear of the plane still being produced. I like that!
(But I fear, Boeing will shut down the production-line in a few years).
What is your opinion?
