Wonder why B is ending the 717? I guess is it because AirTran was really the only one buying them?
|Quoting Liedetectors (Reply 6):|
it was a MDC design. Boeing bought MDC for its military market share, not its commercial airplane group.
|Quoting KC135TopBoom (Reply 9):|
MDC called it the MD-95.
|Quoting B777200 (Reply 8):|
Boeing stopped production of the 717 recently as orders for the 717 were relatively poor.
|Quoting Dogfighter2111 (Reply 3):|
Yer, bugger the B717 production.
The Fokker 100 should be allowed another chance. If only there was some money to re-design the Cockpit and Interior etc.
|Quoting LMP737 (Reply 13):|
If I had a choice between the 717 and the F100 I'll take the 717 anyday.
|Quoting PPVRA (Reply 15):|
I've never been on a B717, could you elaborate?
|Quoting Brokenrecord (Reply 7):|
I suppose that would explain the lack of support for the DC-10 and MD-11 as well.
