Re: GE, Safran announce new airliner engine for the mid 2030s

I assume (based on TP400) cruising speed will be M .8. Ages ago I did a high capacity, shorter range concept with Heny Lam. https://live.staticflickr.com/4280/34915184323_7d2682c42c_b.jpg M.8 is pretty good, what would be cruise altitude? Higher = less noisy to those on the ground
