Is A Picture Worth A Thousand Orders?
Boeing Friday released an artist’s concept of its proposed
717-300X passenger jet, which it hopes would answer airlines’
demand for a larger, short-range, high-frequency airplane.
Boeing is doing this one a little differently. It used to be,
"if you build it, they will come." Now, however, it's "if they
come, we will build it." Development and launch of the
717-300X, which has been offered to several airlines, depends on it
attracting a sufficient number of orders.
Boeing currently produces the 717-200, which typically has 106
seats. The 717-300X would typically carry 130 passengers in a
two-class configuration. The 717-300X would be 138.3 ft. (42.2 m)
long, compared to 124 ft. (37.8 m) for the -200. The -300X would
have higher maximum take-off and space limited payload weights, and
greater engine thrust than the -200. The -300X also would have a
service door behind the wing.
If launched, delivery of the 717-300X is targeted for the second
half of 2006.
