I filled out a bug report quite a while back, but never got a response. During departure, the aircraft again ignores the Accel height entered in the MCDU. It always wants to accelerate at 3000' AGL.

I'd like to take the opportunity to clarify one thing, the other Boeings I'm experienced with generally are configured to perform all these actions at 800 feet AGL, but on 717 I was able to set 800 feet only for OEI (the last of three fields), the others will only accept substantially higher altitudes. Is this correct?

I also noticed occasionally that after Climb Thrust is established by the A/T the plane won't accelerate to 250 KIAS, instead, the "magenta ball" will keep there until a higher altitude is reached, taking quite an amount of time for that, I'd say almost one minute later, even though the preset altitudes are the same for Climb and Acceleration.

Thanks in advance!
