An HA pilot I know recently corrected me (the topic was BR 715s on B712 frames), saying HA's 712s have BR 725 engines.

I thought the BR 725's EIS was on the G650 in 2012, after the B717 production ended (last delivery in 2006 to AirTran).

Probably too heavy for re-engining RJs. What that question really, "why didn't BBD build their version of the 717?" Well, sales of sub-130 seat airliners is the answer--not so many.
