Re: 727 fuel burn / tank management

We have three 727s. Two sister planes and one oddball. The two sisters have all boost pumps on and all crossfeeds open for takeoff. The oddball has all boost pumps on but the crossfeeds tank to engine. I think it just depends on the STC installed for the ZFW increase on the freighters, and whether o...

Re: Embraer hopes E175-E2 jet efficiency helps modify scope clauses

It needs to be remembered that Delta negotiated more large (76 seat, 86,000 lb) regional jets as part of the agreement to bring in the 717 (and not reduce other flying). It was a deal, bring in 88 717s and you can fly 50 more 76 RJs (but the total quantity of alliwed RJs stopped going up). The CS10...

Re: Why did Mcdonnell Douglas not update the B717/MD95 wing?

The B717 got all new avionics and new efficient engines which make this plane still seem modern 20 years after it was first built. Why did MD choose to keep the same low-tech DC9 wing on this bird? I can't help but wonder if the 717 would've been more popular and in production much longer (even aft...
