FYI: RR did make an engine for the 2nd generation 777s.

It's called Trent 8104 (104000lbs thrust?) and made 110000lbs in testing. Making it close to the GE90-110/115s.
But GE came and take all the money away and airlines only have GE on offer.


That is a fantastic article! Thank you for sharing

Yes. This is true. MEL-JNB-MEL on a 77W. ETOPS regulations made the flight quite long and possibly too costly to justify continuing.

Another limitation of a hypothetical 275t A339 is it's size.

I think the market for a potential A350-1000ULR is smaller than 75-100 frames.

For a more decent sized market it will need a MTOW bump to increase payload with range unlike the A359ULR that trades one for the other.
