Can anybody please tell me what thrust ratings the different engines available for the A330 offer? Are they a good takeoff-climbout aircraft? I realise the 757 may well be in a league of its own in that area, but i can`t help but wonder if the A330 wouldn`t be far behind it?

I work with A330-200s all the time that are equipped with the RR Trent 772.
The Airbus website states 72,000 lbs. for one engine, but I've heard a mechanic say they're de-rated to 71,100 each. When these aircraft take off, they have very good performance and is about equal to a 767-300.
RR makes a fine engine. The Trents on these A330s are so quiet and sound so cool. The build quality looks very good too.

Wasn't C3's 332 (C-GGWA) the first with the Trents?
I've witnessed those puppies pull C-GGWA down the runway while her brakes were locked and wheels chocked. Mind you, it was on a snow covered runway. er... This info is kinda hush hush, by the way.
