As you may know, both Pratt and Whitney as well as General Electric produce engines for the B 747-400LR. But why not Rolls Royce?
Do you guys think they will ever make engines for the B 747-400LR? They really should. Coz the number of orders of the B 747-400LR is growing. And as many of you have stated, SIA is likely to order the B 747-400LR to replace some of its oldest B 747-400s in the future. I believe that they are looking into RR powered B 744LRs. Right?
So, there is a market for Rolls Royce. So do you guys think that Rolls Royce will produce engines for the B 747-400LR?
