Hi,

I am trying to identify the engine manufacturer for OZ's 777s. On certain pictures they look like Trents, but on others they could be GE-90s or PW 4000s just as well.

I am confused.

OZ 777s use PW4090s.

Ah, thank you for that.

And I thought I had my 777 engines nailed down.

I would really like engine manufacturers to differentiate their 747, 767 and 777 products better!!!

Generally Rolls Royce engines are quite unique in design (long and slender) but PW and GE, not so easy to pick the differences at times.

I almost asked this same question a couple days ago. LOL. Why is it that whenever 777 engine types come up people always bash United with their P&W and how they're less capable, yet you never hear people bashing KE, Asiana, etc. who have them on their birds?

For info, a quick check of Boeing orders data shows the following engine types on models with a choice of engine manufacturers.

-200.......... GE 9, PW 63, RR 16
-300...... ....GE 0, PW 18, RR 42
-200ER....GE 167, PW 88, RR 175

A few orders don't show the engine maker.

Plus the 383 -300ER, 47 -200LR, and 75 -200F models ordered to date where GE is the only engine available.

And of course, Rolls Royce rules, as per expected.  Smile

Thank you for the info!
