Mmo is .82.  The Long Range Cruise Mach for the -300 is about 0.745,
depending on a number of factors.  For the -700, it will be around .785.

That doesn't make the -300 a flying pig by any means.  You should check out
the Fokkers (around .71) or that BAe 146 (about .67!).  Talk about your
speed bumps.  :)
