Engine Type On AF 772's?

Wed Aug 31, 2005 12:02 pm

Hi all,

I have been lurking here for a while lately, and just got around to signing up. Great site! I just have a question about the Air France 777's, and was wondering which engines AF uses on this a/c or among their fleet in general?

Does AF generally try and stay with the same engine manufacturer, or do they diversify a bit?

I leave for a HKG-CDG-LYS-CDG-ARN-Kalmar-ARN-CDG-HKG trip tonight that covers 6 diff. a/c types too, so it should be fun!

Thanks in advance!

Air France uses GE for most of their Fleet, their 777s are GE90s

Welcome to the boards, Have a safe trip, and if at CDG you unload at a remote stand, take a good look at that beauty GE-90 as you exit the airstairs.

Yeah I hear the GE-90's are a gigantic engine. This will be my first time on a 77X, so I am excited. All in all, I get a bit of everything this trip: 772's, 320's, a fokker 100, 737, and MD-80 just on one business trip is quite good I think!

AF use GE or CFM (Which GE is a partner in) on its aircraft. Where those two engines exist as an option on an aircraft you'll see AF order.

Probably as much chance of seeing an RR powered widebody with AF as a WN A319  Wink
