In my experience the RB211 very seldom stalls or surges, and these are old, non electronic engines as on the L/1011. The new EEC engines (757, 767 etc) must be great. In the PW2037 class I attended, the PW instructor stood up in front of the class and told us that PW should build a three-spool engine. I wish everyone would.
