CIT Orders RR Trents For A330, B787s

Rolls-Royce said CIT Aerospace was buying the Trent 700 to power four firm orders, and seven options, for Airbus A330 planes, and the Trent 1000 for two firm Boeing 787s on order and options to equip three additional 787s.


Question: it is the first time that I hear about CIT having options on both the A330 and B787. Looking at Airbus´ O&D spreadsheet I see that so far 10 out of 25 firm A330s have been delivered. Anyone able to indicate what engines the remaing 15 on order are having? And anyone able to clarify the options? Are those new, or when were they taken?

Flown: A319/320/321,A332/3,A380,AT4,AT7,B732/3/4/5/7/8,B742/4,B762/763,B772,CR2,CR7,ER4,E70,E75,F50/70,M11,L15,S20

My guess is that the airframes are not 'options' but that CIT have the option of putting Trents on them. In other words, they'll certainly put Trents on four A330s and two 787s and have sucured 'options' (= guaranteed prices and/or delivery slots) with RR to put them on seven more A330s and three 787s.

In other other words (!) all the planes (11 A330s & 5 787s) are on firm order.

But I'm only guessing.

It's hard to keep track of which engines leasing companies may or may not have chosen but to the best of my knowledge CIT ordered 15 A330-200s in 2006 of which 4 will have GE, 4 will have RR and 7 haven't yet been announced.

Quoting PM (Reply 1):

But, of course, I could be wrong because...


CIT have only ordered 5 787s. Three will have GE (announced by GEAE on 8th March) and 2 will have RR (announced today). So the additional RR ones (above) must indeed be optioned airframes.
