Qantas 12(has this now changed??)
Qatar 02
Singapore 10 (Has this now changed??)

Total orders 159

Firstly, are their any corrections to the above information. All info taken from Airbus website.

A380-861 Engine Alliance GP7270 Engine
A380-843F RR Trent 977 Engine

Secondly, can I confirm that these are the correct engine types for the aircraft.

Thirdly, can anybody please confirm which airlines have ordered which engine types.

Many thanks

ILFC, UPS, FX, AF, KE and EK have all ordered GE/EA. The rest RR apart from TG and Kingfisher who are undecided i believe.

Emirates 43 (All Pax Version) (GP7200)
Etihad 04 (Trent 900)
Federal Express 10 (GP7200)

Kingfisher 05 (Not yet decided)
Korean Air 05 (GP7200)
Lufthansa 15 (Trent 900)
Malaysian 06 (Trent 900)
Qantas 12 (Trent 900) (No, this has this not changed: still 12.)
Qatar 02 (Not yet decided)
Singapore 10 (Trent 900) + 9 new orders for which no engine announcement has been made.
Thai Int 06 (Not yet decided)
UPS 10 (GP7200)
Virgin 06 (Trent 900)

The ILFC order is unclear. I've got an idea that both RR and EA have claimed at least some of it.

Only an a.net rumor that somehow got turned into news. QF has not converted options or ordered more, but they did order more 330s, and some people got "confused".  Wink

Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.
