Hello all

I don't see anywhere B747-800 going to have two engine types just one? I thought with RR would be two engine choice since thats what B787s will offer so I figure B747-800 will have two choices too.

Given the much smaller market, it made more sense for Boeing to opt for a single engine supplier.

Boeing and GE entered into an exclusivity agreement on powering the 747-8I. Whether it was because GE was willing to risk-share on the 747-8I as they were on the 77L/77W or RR was not interested in providing an engine for the 747-8I based on the Trent 1000 I cannot say.

Thanks Chaps!
We know this is the real 748 and we will always think of it when we see 748   

Ok I have now finished. You lot can go and carry on about your Bloody Jumbo 748!

Oh... I think it will do ok but not as well as the 744. The A380/787/777/A3XX etc will p*ss on it's fireworks. So it will only need one engine type  wink
