CFM to benefit from Continental jet order
Tuesday June 6, 9:36 pm ET


Continental Airlines said Tuesday it is increasing the number of Boeing jets it's ordering to update its fleet, which means more engine orders for CFM International.

The Houston-based airline said in a news release that it will order 10 additional Boeing 787 Dreamliner wide-body aircraft, bringing its total order to 20.

The 787 will be powered by the GEnx engine, now under development by CFM, a joint venture of GE Aviation and Snecma.

Continental (NYSE: CAL - News) is also ordering an additional 24 Boeing Next Generation 737 (737NG) aircraft, bringing the total number of the aircraft in its fleet to 237.

The airline said in the news release that it is replacing older aircraft with the more fuel-efficient 787s and 737NGs.

GE Aviation, headquartered in Evendale, is a unit of New York-based General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE - News).

Quoting Boeing7E7 (Thread starter):
The 787 will be powered by the GEnx engine, now under development by CFM, a joint venture of GE Aviation and Snecma.

No wonder the 787 is so efficient! Apparently, it only needs 34,000 lbs of thrust per engine!!  sarcastic 

(The reporter is correct that the overall CO order does benefit CFM, because their engines will be hanging on 24 new 737s. But sheesh.)

I sent the reporter an email last night with references and a proposed correction. Of course, no reply. Ironically, the article doesn't even mention the real reason that CFM will benefit from the order, or that the CFM engine is all that you can get on the 737NG. Duh.

Hey, wait a minute! They DID correct the article, with my proposed change. However, although the Headline now references GE Aviation, they still refer to CFM in the first sentence, which is fine, but then don't explain WHY CFM will benefit (which is that it makes the only engine for the 737NG).

Here's the corrected version:

Cool!

The interesting part about this is that while GE Aviation historally works closely with SNECMA on all it's engines, SNECMA has literally NO contributions whatsoever (other than parts) to the GEnx engine...
