Japan Air Lines 777 Engines

Thu Oct 09, 2003 6:41 am

What type of engines does JAL use on their 777s? I'm not sure what kind of engines are in these photos... they look like GE90s but I didn't think JAL had GE's.

JAL's ER 772 & 773 are all GE90 powered, while their non-ER 772 & 773 are PW4000 powered. I guess that's what happens when you only get one engine choice on a variant. Silly really.

The engines in those pictures are GE90-94Bs. They have those GEs on the new 777-200ER aircraft. On the 777-200 aircraft, they have PW 4084 engines and PW 4090s on the 777-300s. They will get more GE 90s when they get the 777-300ERs next year.

They are indeed GEs. JAL has them on the 763, 744, and 777ERs.

What's more "silly" are the completely misinformed arm-chair CEOs who to this day still cannot comprehend why there's only a single engine choice for the 777NGs...

hint: it's not solely for the purpose of antagonizing you and RR-preferring airlines, though I'm sure Boeing included that in its plan  Insane

All their 772B and 773B are powered by PW engines, their ER versions are powered by GE engines.
