Olympic 717 Future?

Mon Nov 21, 2005 6:04 pm

Does the 717 has a future with OA or the company who follows if they fail?
For now, do they (the 717) still flying for OA?

I don't know about their future but at present they still fly some domestic routes from Athens and some international (European low demand) destinations.

Maybe Air Tran will pick them up. I'm sure they could use some additional airplanes.

I wouldn't be surprised if every 717 off the line eventually ends up with a teal colored tail decorated with a white "A" ... FL will be flying that plane for a long, long time to come.

All three leases are due to expire on March, provided, of course that the entity is still 'alive'.

As per numerous other threads, these are headed to Bankok.

I didn't realize Bangkok Air was still buying/leasing 717's. Didn't they announce an order for Airbus narrowbodies not too long ago?

Any particular reason why they (717s) were never painted in OA's blue/white scheme?

I believe the 717s were operated by Olympic Aviation, and thus never received the normal Olympic Airlines/Airways scheme.
