I think they willl work fine once the flaws in engine r fixed or changed......also there is no fault in the design of plane......engine is designed by rolls royce, it can be replaced easily.....Concord had a faulty design...they were dangerous to fly..... I have been to Indian airlines workshop and believe me changing a jet engine of a plane is routine work there

This is the age of MCLR aircrafts (Medium capacity long range) like Boeing 777 and very soon 787 .Even Boeing 747 would be phased out soon.
