All this was true for AF, though. I wonder why they didn't. Hazarding a guess, they had a pretty decent 747-400 fleet (passenger, freighter and combi) so they may not have felt they needed the A340-600 at launch and by the time the 747-400s were ready for retirement or they needed more VLA frames, ...

Actually the other way around. BA’s initial 777s has GE until they switched to their preferred vender of RR. The GE90 decision was related to a sale of BA’s engine overhaul facility to GE. Wasn’t there also a contractual issue with a canceled or substituted 744 order? As I understand it, the deal t...
