All we destined for Norwegian, but never delivered.
So these would be RR powered, if I recall correctly? The main LH order is also for RR powered aircraft and the 5 white-tails already ordered were GE? For LH, much like DL, a mixed engine fleet probably makes little difference as they maintain both. They already operate IAE and CFM A32x, for example and have CFM and P&W orders for their A32xNEO.
Don’t forget, and I’m sure it’s been mentioned before, LH already have the GEnx Engines on the 747-8, so they mx team will be trained, so as you say, will make little differed.
In a smaller fleet like Austrian, continuity with the engines will help a lot, likely why they didn’t the GEnx engines on the LH white-tail order.
