Boeing states no compelling reason to re-engine B737

Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO, Jim Albaugh, stated the manufacturer does not see a “compelling” reason to fit new engines to its B737NG narrowbody family, and doing so would only add “a few per cent” in financial benefits for airlines (Financial Times, 09-Dec-2010).
