ILFC has apparently selected the Airbus A318 over the Boeing 717-200 (nee
Douglas MD-95), and signed a MOU with Airbus for a possible order for up to
30. You can see an Airbus press release with more details at

Certainly NOT good news for the 717, which still has only the original
ValuJet/Airtran order for 50, plus 5 for lessor Bavaria. Perhaps not so
surprising, given that ILFC already has lots of A320-family aircraft on its
roster, but still bad news.
