Engine Manufacturer's Logos On Nacelles

Just curious as to what determines whether an airline puts engine manufacturer's logos on the nacelles; do airlines who do so get any sort of compensation or cheaper replacement parts, or it is just purely a pride thing? "Powered by Rolls Royce" or "GE Jet Power," etc...

Its just a Decal that Identifies the Engine which is optional.
The RR ones look great though....



Think of the brighter side!

Personally, I think it a shame that the display of the engine logo is no longer in vogue.
A few notable exceptions not withstanding. Whether it be the desire for a uniform (plain)
appearance across the fleet, or simple oblivion that such things matter to some, who knows?
Perhaps it's just the economics of having to purchase the decal to affix to the nacelle,
and it's not like airlines these days have much 'mad money' for such whimsical things!

Truth be told, I am more than just a little biased. Safe to say my objectivity on the topic
is seriously challenged and I blame it all on the past!

Funny you bring this up...I was just wondering the same the other day? Guess it is politically not correct as the other manufacturers might be "offended".

I seriously doubt that is the reason.

I know political correctness is out of control in some parts of the world but this is a bit extreme. If anything, when you win a contract you like to "stick it" to the opposition.

Back on topic, I remember flying on SAA's 747 Classics and they had the big Pratt and Whitney eagle decal on the engines. Comforting in a way.

No close ups in the database but you can see them on this SP.

Ahhh, indeed!!    Full disclosure: I am a bit biased toward P&W. Not that there is anything wrong with any other manufacturer, but we all have our preferences and that logo on an aircrafts' engine is mine!

On the Rolls Royce Darts found on the HS748s around here the RR logo is actually not a sticker, but a metal piece riveted onto the side of each cowling. From what I've seen I think these cowlings are standard on most Darts, regardless of aircraft type. Once riveted on there it generally stays on there, and for the airline theres really no advantage to going through all the work of drilling them out and filling the holes. Plus they just look cool.

It is a customer choice. Some have both the engine logo and their own; some only their own; and every combination, including no logo of any kind...
