AA 757 W/ RR Or PW Engines?

Mon Sep 30, 2002 3:27 am

I usually dont post an "opinion" topic, but after looking at some photos of some AA 757's, I wasn't sure what to think..Take a look: One with the Rolls Royce engines, and one with the ex-TWA 757s (in AA colors) with Pratts. What do you guys think looks better?

I think the RR nacelles look better.

The Pratts, I think they look and sound much better. IMO.

I prefer the look of the PW's. It's just a personal aesthetic preference I guess!

Wonder whether AA will keep the 27 PW 752's? There's probably no market for 27 used PW 752's anyway.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

I like the Pratt and Whitney's better. They look more fitting for the airplane. Don't get me wrong the RR's on AA's 757's look pretty cool but I like the engines on TWA's a little better.
