" It's not pining, it's passed on. The 717 is no more. It has ceased to be. It's expired, and gone to meet its maker. It's a stiff. Bereft of life it rests in peace. Its metabolic processes are now history. It's off the twig. It's kicked the bucket, shuffled off its mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible.
It is an ex-plane."
I very much doubt this. Boeing has no reason to keep the line open now unless it is anticipating orders in the future. And not to stir things up, but if NW
were ordering DC-9 replacements today the 717 would be a perfect fit.
777ER, the person who said NW
was ordering 500 717s was joking!!!
