>From a cockpit perspective the MD-90 is designed to be as much like the
MD-88 (glass cockpit version of the MD-80) as possible, enabling Delta to
get a common type rating for its pilots.  The many system and performance
improvements on the MD-90 are transparent to the pilot for the most part.

Not so with the up-coming MD-95, however, it will have a state-of-the-art
Honeywell "Advanced Common Flightdeck" with 777-type displays!
