I was wondering, now that the only Douglas line Boeing has decided to keep open is the 717, do they not have a much larger capacity now? With this added factory capacity, can they not add production there of more popular aircraft? Therefore reducing delays in delivery and current congestion in their current plants? Since the MD-80/90 and MD-11 are gone, cant they start a new line for 737s (regular production ones, not just special types as they have said), could this give them an advantage over Airbus when making delivery promises? I'm sure they are already thinking along these lines, sure beats keeping those plants empty.
