This is indeed a strange way of thinking about a B737-replacement...



1. decision which engine, out of three, to be chosen to re-engine the B737.

2. decision IF the B737 will be re-engined or not.


I assume, a lot of people would do it from the other way...

Airlines are demanding a 20% increase in efficiency or some such, unless the laws of flight physics change today, the bulk of such improvements have to come from the powerplant. Boeing's current experience with an all composite fuse may ultimately lead them in the direction of gaining additional improvements with the frame, but as of right now they probably do not have enough in-use or production data to state that they are going to an all composite fuse for the new narrow body.

As of now it does appear that the ball is in the hands of the engine makers, if the OEM's commit to a new design based on the promises of the engine makers, it is a ball rolling downhill and regardless of the final out-come, the ball cannot be stopped, customers, however, can choose not to buy, so.................
