RE: AirTran 717 At SFO

You assume correctly.... That would have been a test aircraft/flight. The 717 won't be FAA certified for another few months.

RE: DC-9/MD-8x

In additon to the 'strakes', the MD80 also has a galley door located just forward of the #1 engine. I don't think the -50's have that feature.

RE: Engine Selection

Most aircraft are offered with a choice of engines.. the 737 being a notable exception. The buyer is free to pick the one they think is cutest. BTW, the 777 has three, not two, engine options: GE, P&W, and RR 'Trent's'

RE: What Does Continental Fly On Short Flights?

From YYZ, CO would go to EWR, not JFK. All flights show to be on 735's. If you are truly going to JFK, it's not via CO.

RE: Elevators In Aircraft

The DC10 had elevators in those aircraft ordered with lower deck galleys. That feature didn't sell too well... UA, AA, and NA were the only airlines that I know of..and then only on the -10's.

ONA= Overseas National Airlines.. A Charter operator that either went out of busness or merged with some other company many years ago.
"CF" would suggest a convertible freighter.

RE: What About The MD-10?

So far, FedEX is the only MD10 opperator... it was their idea BTW. As for AA and UA having lots of DC10's.....that's no longer the case.... Where do you think FedEX is getting DC10's to convert to MD10's? For that matter, almost all of AA's MD11's now (or soon will be) wear FedEX colors.

RE: Continental's N-numbers

Here's how it works: The FAA does not allow the letters "O" or "I" to be used.... to avoid confusion with the numbers "0" and "1". Therefore "NxxxCO" is not possible. Some of the older A300's were Reg. "NxxxC", and some of the 'used' aircraft still have the original Reg. #. But All new planes are "N...

RE: Delta Airlines CEO Stepping Down

As for the 777/MCO matter, the 777 is a new aircraft for DL. As such, it would be used on domestic routes for training reasons. However... DL has delayed dilivery of several 777's due to pilot pay issues, so I wonder if DL777's are getting much flight time just now.

RE: 747 In The Movie Turbulence

The interior of the aircraft was a movie set.... none of it was a real plane. That is why you see 747's flying non-stop SAN to LIT, a 2nd officer on a 737, a BAE 146 with an interior wider then a DC10, etc.

RE: Why Has 737-600 Not Sold As Well As Other 737NGs

Sv11 is right. The 736 is too small for most carrier's needs. The additional cost of the -700 is minor compared to the revenue the 20 extra seats can produce...... BTW, the 6/7/800 are all built on the same production line(s)..so there is no reduced 'backlog' for the -600.
