>From what I gathered from the press, the problem was stated to be the
Turbine Blades as said by the above.

However what was not mentioned above, was that the problem was caused by the
refurbished blades not being able to cope with the extra stresses that arise
with the Hush-Kits units.

It was then decided to change Air NZ policy to use only new Turbine Blades
on the 737-200's Engines.

This again is picked up from the local New Zealand Press.

BTW.  After spending some time living near Wellington Airport in New
Zealand, I can testify to one thing.  The 737's with Hush Kits, while
better, are far from quiet!!!!
