Lufthansa announced its intend to order 20 A319s to replace its B737-200s.
It was also reported that Lufthansa would be ordering the CFM56 engine
to power the A319.  The engine selection is very mind-boggling:

When Lufthansa made the A320 launch order, it selected the IAE V2500
engine, but later switched to the CFM engine.  When Lufthansa ordered
the A321, it selected the IAE engine.  Now, it are going back to the
CFM engine.
