Lion air to buy A320 engines from GE, Safran JV

Indonesia's Lion Air has ordered engines for 60 Airbus A320 jets from General Electric (GE) and Safran joint venture CFM International in a deal worth $1.2B at list prices.

Lion Air still has to decide which engines it wants to buy for its 174-strong fleet of upgraded A-320 aircraft that it has on order.

Lion Air intends to cancel a booking for five Boeing (BA) 787-8 aircraft, as it wants to buy bigger planes next year, although it also plans to purchase Boeing 737 aircraft.

    Yes 3d parts are in the future, but you look too old to see it come to fruition.
