DOUGLAS / MCDONNELL DOUGLAS / BOEING | DC-9 / MD-80 / MD-90 / B-717

As I was on travel again the last days I took some airplane pictures. Surprisingly I've not found a thread for the DC-9 / MD-80 / MD-90 / B-717 aircraft series here. actually the first type of this series I've been flying with was a NWA DC-9 ... DTW to JFK ... I still remember this flight as I've been upgraded. I searched for pictures of this trip on my external HD ... well, I guess they're all in Stuttgart.

There are still quite a number of all the types produced in this series in service - and I hope there is also a fan base here on SSC.

Below a fresh picture of a MD-83 still in service with Far Eastern Air Transport (FE) for charter flights to Siem Reap, Cambodia.

McDonnell Douglas/Boeing | MD-80/MD-90/DC-9/B-717

hi, everyone...can we discuss about md-80/md-90?

from wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McDonnell_Douglas_MD-80
Quote:
The McDonnell Douglas MD-80 is a family of twin-engine, short- to medium-range, single-aisle commercial jet airliners. The MD-80 series were lengthened and updated from the DC-9. The airliner family can seat from 130 up to 172 passengers depending on variant and seating configuration.
The MD-80 series was introduced into commercial service on October 10, 1980 by Swissair. The series includes the MD-81, MD-82, MD-83, MD-87, and MD-88. These all have the same fuselage length except the shortened MD-87. The MD-80 series was followed into service in modified form by the MD-90 in 1995 and the MD-95/Boeing 717 in 1999.

I wouldn't be surprised if Delta becomes the only MD-90 operator in the near future. EVA Air/Uni Air are retiring their MD-90 fleet and Delta is expected to pick those up as well.

They already have the biggest MD-80 family fleet that is also growing now they are taking delivery of the 88 Boeing 717s that come from AirTran. They will operate a fleet of over 250 planes, out of 800 which are currently still active (not counting the DC-9).

Very true. However, Allegiant Air (a discount carrier out of Nevada) also has a sizable fleet. I guess Delta is taking a page out of the southwest playbook buy having a good portion of their fleet being one series. While they are old and thirsty, Md88 and variants can be bought for under $5M, so they remain appealing.

I'll be happy when the last DC9 and it's derivatives are cut up for scrap. Cramped, noisy, uncomfortable plane.

The MD-80 is my favorite plane in the sky especially the American Airlines MD-80. One of the most comfortable planes in the sky. I haven't been on an MD-90 yet so cannot wait to fly on one and am glad at least Delta has MD-90's.

I was lucky to fly on an Alitalia MD-80 back in 2007 from Rome to Catania. Loved the flight. I love the sound of the engines so whenever I book a flight on American I book the seat that's just in front of the engine.

Alitalia and Meridiana they still operate MD-80 or similar, not sure of the type though will check

Meridiana operates 10 MD-82, Alitalia has replaced all those they had in their fleet, sorry about the mistake.
