Good news only, please

Further good news is that Rolls Royce has won a $2.7Bn order from budget carrier Norwegian Air for a package of new Trent 1000 engines and service support for 19 new 787 Dreamliner aircraft. This is just as well because it looks like the order book for Rolls Royce limousines to oil Sheiks will be slowing down. What a shame.
