    Yeah - 10% more efficient - bigger than the RR Trent - but, honestly, if I was going over the pond, I'd prefer 4 rather than 2 engines. And, then, I'm only a retired farmer - what do I know?!?

    Cheers - Dai. Cool

    I could not agree more it was always going to be a sad day when the bean counters hold sway over common sense. it has already been proven that twin engine planes with a double flame out tend not to fly very far, the chance of a 4 engine flame out are extremely remote. it is interesting to note that lufthansa have bout the 747/8 and very few others, it is not a case of if another twin gets a double failure but when and if that is say mid atlantic the results will not be good, and there will be a rush to buy up all the 747's parked in the deserts but by then they will all be coke cans
    progress eh?
