Even though they were the launch engines, it seems that not many airlines are selecting Pratt & Whitney engines for their 777s. The GE and Rolls Royce counterparts seem much more popular. Why?

Without the 777LR, however, GE would have achieved the lowest market share for the 777. PW was a strong second place until the last couple of years. As it was stated on another forum, the idea of a derivative seemed great in 1990 and for most of the decade. However, you know Krapek and his boys are gonna be kicking themselves for years over that mistake.

I should say up until the announcement of the 777LR Ge was a distant third in 777 engines with only about 23% of the market. The worst for any airframe that GE supplied an engine for.

How about the A330? What other customers does GE have for that besides Canada 3000, Aer Lingus and now Qantas?

AF and PAL are the ones I can think of right now, but I`m sure there is a few more.

The A330 is another airframe on which GE has failed to achieve any significant sucess. Their goal is to increase their marketshare from 20% to 30% by 2003. Of course the biggest impact upon their marketshare has been the order by GECAS for the type. The ability of offer cheap leases w/ Ge engines of course being a huge advantage that RR and PW do not have.

Hey all,

Didn't Qantas just order GE CF680-C2s for their new A330s?

I am a plane spotter, usually at LAX. Most of the 777's I see use the pratt and whitney engines.

Yep, quite surprisingly QF selected GE engines for their 330s and their 744LRs/ERs...
Early Air, I suppose the majority of PW powered 777s at LAX are UAL?
