Someone told me that only GE Engines are available for the proposed B 747-400QLR. Can anyone confirm this?

I strongly doubt it since Boeing won't be stupid enough to make the same mistake they made with the B 777-300ER.

Will P&W, RR etc produce engines for the B 747-400QLR?

Given the low volume of sales currently being achieved across the 744 range, it is unlikely RR or P&W would be interested in developing a new engine type for the QLR.

They would probably be more interested in developing for the SC and RR will still be busy working on the big Trents for the A380.

well, they still producing engines for the B 747-400.

Currently, there are a number of airlines that are interested in the B 747-400... Most of them are Asian based. Like SIA, CX etc.

There's a big difference between continuing to produce an existing engine and developing a new one.

I certainly hope that P&W, as well as RR will produce engines for the B 747-400QLR.

According to Boeing's website, all three Manufacturers will be producing engines for the B 747-400QLR.

As this point, only GE has defined a product for the XQLR, but P&W has said their existing product can be easily adapted for the XQLR. RR has said that they intend to develop the Trent 600 for the XQLR. So, it's not an exclusive deal like the B777LR.
