Qatars website says their new A333 and some of their A32s have a GE CF6-80E1A4B, hows this A4B differ from a standard A4??? Is it higher thrust than an A4 but less than an A3??

Their planes were ordered with the CF6-80E1A3, all of them, if I'm not mistaken. The 333s are the HGW variant, although it is possible to engine it with 68,000 lbt engines I don't know why you would if the better thrust was available.

If this is a new engine type, it deviates from the original order as well.

GE's website has no information on an E1A4B, only the A4.

edit: I see what you're talking about on their website. It clearly says the 333s have A4Bs, and the 332s are mixed A3s and A4Bs.

I guess they decided they could run their 333 mission profile with only 68,000 lbt engines.
