If you had the opportunity to make a new generation of 717, what would you add and switch?
Make it a bit smaller so there could be a wider range of choices, therefore making more money from customers.
I would make sure that all of the old dials were replaced with screens. The sunroof offers a plus and minus. The plus being you have an additional window in the best office on Earth, the minus being the sun glaring down on you from time to time. I wouldn’t change the good old fashioned controls, they’re tried and true. I would most DEFINITELY not have the compass behind the FO. I’m sorry, I know the system works but I don’t want to be checking my compass via a mirror. Other than that, I wouldn’t change anything. I love that jet. Excellent topic.
Haha make the engines less loud
I would completely redesign the engine layout, so it’s still in the back, just a lot quieter. Then I would most likely add larger windows, carbon composites, and maybe a blended winglet.
And Boeing 717-9
Put JT8Ds back on the plane cause why not.
Mine would be called the 717-8 ER
°LED Landing Lights
°Noise Cancellation Body
I think Boeing would have to retire the 717 name and call it something else with a brand new foundation since most of us know it as the md95. I say Boeing should call it something extraordinary.
