BIG HONKIN' engines help, but not once your off the runway at Salt Lake or Denver.
|Quoting BDL2DCA (Reply 1):|
Since the MD-90's range is only 2400 statute miles, it would not have the same transcon capabilities as the 737NG or the 320 series. That might limit its appeal, since it would not be able to do northeast-to-California runs.
|Quoting Lightsaber (Reply 5):|
When the MD90 was launched, its range was competitive
|Quoting BDL2DCA (Reply 6):|
Considering the 320 series aircraft were out at the time, I'd say its range was not competitive. Otherwise, we might have seen an AC or UA order for the M90, rather than the 32S.
|Quoting S12PPL (Reply 2):|
I think the M90 is a totally different airplane than the 737NG's, or the A320. They, I think, are designed for different markets.
|Quoting Lightsaber (Reply 7):|
Maybe AA? IIRC they ordered the 737-800 in 1998
