So much for the fact BA are pissed off with General Electric won't work with General Electric in the future....I wonder if this leads to BA potentially purchasing some 777-300ER's, 777-200LR's and some 748-8's.......I wouldn't be surprised if they do, as former CEO Eddington has mentioned BA purchasing the 777-300ER and current CEO Walsh looking into the 748-8......
