Boeing Widebodies: Engine Shares 1969-2006

Mon Jan 22, 2007 10:03 am

OK, I've really wasted some serious time putting this one together!  Wink

Boeing delivered their first widebodies (747s, of course) in 1969. Since then and up till the end of last year they have delvered 2929 widebodies.

(1380 747s, 947 767s and 604 777s)

Of these...

1293 had GE (44.1%)
1194 had PW (40.7%)
444 had RR (15.1%)

By engine (i.e. x4 for the 747 and x2 for the 767 and 777)...

3844 PW engines (44.6%)
3496 GE engines (40.5%)
1282 RR engines (14.9%)

(The above does not include engines sold as spares as I have no means of counting them.)

So, GE have powered the most Boeing widebodies but PW have hung the most engines on Boeing widebodies. Clearly, that will change in the next few years.

To throw a spanner in the works, as part of their 80s agreement, RR built some CF6s while GE built some RB211-535s.

I've no idea how many of each were built though!!!

Nice work PM  thumbsup   thumbsup 

In terms of the volume of engines sold, it's obvious that GE has dramatically grown in market share since just a decade ago.

Which is a bummer, because I prefer servicing the JT9D-7Q's FAR more than the CF6-80's on my company's 747s.

How did that work?
