GE 757?

Sun Oct 10, 1999 11:20 am

Is it true that there are some 757's with GE engines. I thought that PW & RR were the only two manufacturers of powerplants for the 757. If true what airline has GE powered 757's ?

Ever 757 is powered by RB211 or PW2000 engines. There are no GE powered 757s.

Correct. Interesting story on that topic. GE was in the process of designing an engine for the 757 when it took Boeing's suggestion and instead worked on an engine for a new 737. It's the CFM56 and the rest is history.

I heard that GE did not wont to spend money in trying to develop a down-graded engine being used on the 767.
