They are dinky. When GE went from the CF34-3B1 to the CF34-8CX model they had a core that they could significantly derate for the -700 and -900 application. I'm sure they've just been pouring the power back in to the new model.

The CF34-3B1 was the last gentleman's engine on that airplane (the -200 motor). We don't need no stinkin' FADEC.

They totally do look dinky given the size. I mean look at that thing, it's longer than the Dreamlifter. I measured it on the screen.

They are not down, but they are dorked up since ALPA decided to make their site more secure by asking the same control question, twice. You have probably just been locked out. Click the link to reset.



You will find much better information here. On the ALPA Board the same folks are throwing the same crud at each other. It is very personal and unless you enjoy a pilot version of a Telenova Soap Opera (ie, barely intelligible, but you know they are fighting) then you are a lot better off here.

I don't know how some of the big players over there get anyone to fly with them. Amazing they put their names to the stuff they write. This board is anonymous, yet much more civil and self regulating.

Overall, very positive going forward.

Made a point that this early pilot TA was to gain flexibility at it's DCI carriers. Sounds like 50 seaters will be reduced, but overall reliance will not.

Cutting another 5% trans Atlantic and 3-4% system wide. The hits just keep on coming!! I see more backwards movement and stagnation in our future. Unless there are growth a/c and DCI disappears.
