Re: GlobalX acquiring B717's?

We know the 717s will be retired by 2025 (see link below). The pandemic and then the resulting increase in oil prices changed the economics. I suspect the shutdown really effected parts vendors; possibly to the point it isn't viable anymore as a large fleet, but I speculate. https://onemileatatime....
