777 Engines

Sun Jan 28, 2001 12:12 pm

Does anybody out there know what kind of engines are on the Delta, United, Continental, and American 777's? Why do most of the U.S. airlines not use the GE 90's and which airlines do use the GE 90's? Thanks.

Actually CO is the only US airline using GEs. DL and AA both use Trent's, and UA uses PW4000s.

United have P&W engines, I am unsure of others, but I will try to find out for you. As for GE90s, BA's first batch were delivered with these engines, before they change to RR. China Southern's a GE90 as well.

My 777 book is in front of me, and by reading the photo captions I have come up with the following (this info is for the early operators of the a/c and early deliveries):

United:P&W4084
British Airways:GE90/RR Trent800
Cathay Pacific:RR Trent800
All Nippon:P&W4098
JAL:P&W4098
Saudia:GE90
Korean:P&W4098
Thai:RR Trent800
Singapore:RR Trent800
Emirates:RR Trent800

Hope it's all correct and useful!

From memory, MAS's have RR Trents as well

Which Trents does Cathay Pacific equip its 777-200s with? Are they 877s or 884s? Thanks in advance.

Hey CXA330-342,

According to the book I have, which was published in 1996, Cathay Pacific machines have Trent 800 and 890's.  Smile

US A333 PIT - Those would be the GE90-110 you are refering to, the higgher thrust version to be used in the 777LR, the regular GE90-85 is rated at 84,700lb, while the Trent 877 and Pratt 4077 are both rated at 76,850lb.

AA B777-223(ER) TRENT892-17
CO B777-224(ER) GE90-92B
DL B777-232(ER) TRENT 892
UA B777-222(ER) PW4090, B777-222 PW4077
CX B777-267 TRENT877, B777-222 TRENT884 (reg B-HNL, ex-N7771.)
CZ B777-21B GE90-85B, B777-21B(ER) GE90-92B
BA 1st ver. B777-236(ER) GE90-85B, 2nd ver. B777-236(ER) GE90-90B, 3rd ver. B777-236(ER) TRENT895, B777-236 GE90-76B.

The largest power for B777 at the moment should be TRENT895.. then GE90-94B
