I'd say whatever engines they use on their 747s and 767s (do they have 757s as well?). Pratt&Whitneys or GEs. It makes sense to retain a common engine mfr for ease of servicing.

El Al has Pratt & Whitney engines for its current widebodies. I suspect they will pick Pratt for the 777s -- and possibly the A330s. El Al is a long-time Pratt customer.
