Re: The perfect 737-200 replacement: the A318

The value of 2nd hand A318s lies in it's spare parts that make it useful for other A320-family aircraft. This is why even almost new A318 have been disassembled to reuse their parts already.

Would the Casa 295 or Trj (dornier 328) be up for the job?:

If I understand the 737 situation regarding certification, if one were to put a set of the old JT8D on the wings of a 'new' generation 737, would that work....even feasible? Unsure if it's primarily the airframe that's timed/cycled out? Of course, that does nothing to address the combi aspect of the 732. As far as the certification goes, that wouldn't be an issue, would it (referring to the nose, landing gear, etc needing to stay virtually the same....)?
