according to the article below DJ has picked CFM engines for their latest order of 737-800s - I bet that was a hard fought contest between CFM and all the other manufacturers supplying 737NG engines  sarcastic 

http://news.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=107720

Australian airline Virgin Blue has picked CFM International, a joint venture between General Electric Co and France's Safran, to supply engines for its new Boeing jets, Safran says.

Safran said the order for CFM56-7B engines to power nine Boeing 737-800 aircraft was worth about $US100 million ($A136 million) at list price. Delivery is scheduled for between 2008 and 2010.

Uhmm I thought the only engine that is certified for the 737NG program was CFM.

Doesn't seem like breaking news to me, as I was on an America West 733 with CFM engines a couple of months ago.

Excellent news. Do we have any idea how that will affect future 737NG orders? As in, is CFM now more likely to supply engines for future 737 that will be ordered?

Also, how does this affect their position on the A340-300?

Exactly.. I guess his post should have siad dripping with sarcasm...

Hardly news worthy... it would be like if a news release got put out for every 777-300er/777 -200lr purchase stating that the carrier had selected GE engines..

Hey, such news is important as well, just like China Southern's news that their CAN-LAX flight will go from 5x weekly to daily! I mean, can you imagine that, 2 additional weekly frequencies? Personally, I am at total awe at news like these.

*end sarcasm in case it wasn't obvious*

Can barely contain myself - simply shocking!

The message I am about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. I should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed.

Hey, I resent that!! Not fair!


It's a good choice, the CFM. Far superior to the alternative for the 737. I think we'll all agree with that.

I assume you are talking about the 737-GL (glider). It is towed to altitude behind a 777 and released. Unfortunately, due to range constraints, the aircraft is only to be used on short legs.

 Yeah sure

Wow. The kicker for me was that this was a separate press release from the original 738 order announcement.

Oh, man! I really thought the new study about the fuel efficiency gained with the "high speed, low drag" nacelle that houses the JT-8D was going to give that program a resurgent boost!

Long time listener, first time caller, but thought I might as well make my first post as a congrats to CFM on their great accomplishment, amazing achievement, and well-fought battle.

I hear their next announcement will be for a deal to re-engine all of NW's DC-9s.

Wow, that is one of the most redundant news articles i've ever read.

On other news, P&W was awarded a contract to be the sole provider of engines for AA's JT8 powered MD-80s for the next 10 years. RR and GE did not bother participating in the competition for the contract.
