777 Engine Compared With 737 Cabin

Fri Jun 13, 2003 5:57 pm

There has been written a lot about the 777 engine diameter being bigger than the 737 cabin diameter. Some say it is true, and some say it is not true.

But according to GE and Boeing's homepage I have snatch the following facts:

GE90-115 B, the powerplant for B777-300ER has a diameter on 135 inches witch equal 3,43 m.

The interior cabin width on a B737 is 3,40 m.

SO THIS MONSTER ENGINE HAS A BIGGER DIAMETER THAN THE B737.

It sure does, I was thinking about this whan I flew on WN to Vegas last summer. Pretty incredible. Somebody posted a picture in the Photo request fourm a little while ago, with a BA 737 being swallowed by company 777 with a GE90. I have the pic on my home computer, but I am in Ireland right now and dont have access to it... (btw, big trip report when i get back!)
