3 airlines are looking at purchasing B717's! These are:

Turkmenistan (3)
China Yunnan (5) and
China Wuhan (5)

Good news  ! What do you think?

All these airlines are looking at leasing B717's from Pembroke, not purchasing. Hence, these wouldn't be new orders.

Actually, Turkmenistan is looking to buy directly, but the others are indeed from Pembroke.

As time passes, Boeing will get more orders for the 717 from airlines who want to replace their aging DC-9s with a modern up-to-date version.

Exactly. I think Boeing should use that as a sales pitch (I am sure they already do, though)
