Was going to place this in other Qatar/B777 thread but was too rambling. For everyone's information, though I'm sure not surprise:

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) - General Electric Co. said Monday its aviation unit received an order for 40 GE90 engines from Qatar Airways for the airline's 20 longer-range Boeing Co. The order is valued at more than $750 million, GE said.

Not surprising since they are the exclusive manufacturers for the 772LRs and 777-300ERs, thanks for the link anyways.

Well they didn't have much choice  Wink  Silly

The 777-300ER's and 200LR's which they have ordered are only made flown by GE's exclusivly.

I did preface my remarks by saying "not surprise". If the thread is deemed superflous, I'll have it removed!

It was a close run thing between established player General Electric and upstart rival GE, generating a bitter bidding war, cutting margins to the bone, but GE won it in the end  Wink

With earlier 777s having 3 suppliers, I imagine that airlines got much better terms for their engines...

it's the bus to stansted (now renamed National Express a6 to ruin my username)

GE got an exclusive deal on the newer 777 because they made an arrangement with Boeing for underwriting R&D on other projects, I think the 787 but I'm not sure.
