Obviously this is a great achievement and I remember the thread about LH's 747 also achieving more than 100,000 in flight hours (1year and 9 months ago!).

From the press release:
Lufthansa Technik and GE today celebrate a new flight hour record for GE’s CF6-80C2B1F turbofan engine powering Boeing 747-400 aircraft around the world. The first engines of its type operated by Deutsche Lufthansa and maintained by Lufthansa Technik have now surpassed the outstanding record of 100,000 flight hours.

In a list from earlier this year there were ca. half a dozen 744s which had passed that mark, D-ABVB, VC among them. I guess there are about 10 now with are above 100.000. I dont have that list at hand at the moment but we´re talking about the oldest fleet members here, 1989 and 1990 deliveries. VA was delivered later than VB and should have crossed that mark as well now.

There are now 11 which have passed 100.000 hrs (VA,VB,VC,VD,VE,VF,VH,VK,TB,TC,TD) and 6 more (VL,VM,TA,TE,TF,TH) above 97.000 hrs (one of them parked since one year) ...

D-ABVC which was the first to achiev that milestone will also be the first to crack the 110.000 hrs. Only abt 600 hrs left...

Now I understand the joke of the Boeing mechanics at LH Technik that they prefer to work on real planes instead of an "Airbus"..... the technicians really do a great job.
Also no wonder that LH has ordered the 747-8I after that great experience with both the 747 and GE.

If LH orders the 787 it will interesting to see whether they order the Trent Version or the GENx. I would bet on the latter



It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

They won't order the 787 and if they would, TRENT would be the engine...

...but of course, I might be wrong.

I believe LH will order both the 787 and the A350. 787 and 747-8 would be GE powered the Airbus fleet with RR Trents.

Sure might be! B789 for A333 & A343 replacement, A359 & A3510 for A340-600 replacement & grow!

Would be imho a huge win for Boeing as B333 & A343 consist of nearly 50 A/C...

Still...I don't see the 787 in LHs fleet but would appreciate a surprise!

Just curious; what is the longest time for an engine remaining on the wing without being removed for overhaul?

VM is below 66.000. I think you mean VN
