I've noticed that the B717 is certified for sales to the Airlines in the former Sovjet Union. I suppose there is a big market. A lot of the former Russian Aeroflot aircraft are in derelict conditions. And I don't believe that the Russian manufacturers are ready with a plane of their one for this market.
Should this be the way to survive the B717 after the problems with TWA. They ordered a lot of them. Maybe Boeing will sell a lot of them to the countries around Russia. I hope so for them, because the B717 is more than an upgraded DC-9 in my opinion.
