Two More Carriers Select GEnx For 787

Fri Oct 12, 2007 2:27 pm

According to GEAE.com, Uzbekistan Airways and Royal Jordanian have both selected GEnx power for their 787s.

Just thought I'd let y'all know  Smile

Good news for GE. Where does this leave the competitive numbers vs Rolls? Anyone know how it stacks up?

I believe GE is still firmly in the lead, though RR scored a big order with BA, and many carriers have not made their decision yet.

RR also got the bulk of the ILFC order.

According to Wikipedia, the current split is GE 329 and RR 199

Thanks for the update. That's very good news.

On a related note, any guesses which engine SU and SQ will select for their frames?

SQ's choice of engines for the 787 will be interesting. Given that they chose Rolls-Royce for the A380's they have on order and for the 772ER/773 a while back, they'll chose the RR Trent. Also, they have RR's on their A340NG's as well as the A330's that they have on order. Then you have to consider the 20 A350XWB's (and the 20 options) that SQ has on order; currently, the only choice for those planes are also the RR Trent, as GE dropped out of that project (for now, at least). However, their 77W's have the GE90 (obviously, as that's the only choice), so maybe they'll surprise me and pick the GEnx, who knows. To sum it up, my guess is that Singapore will go for the RR Trent 1000. But we'll see what happens!

Another way of looking at it is by customer count - GE 23, RR 14. More significantly, 40 customers have yet to make an announced engine choice, so there's plenty of scope for a big change in the current picture.

So can we assume that one of each manufacturer's customers are going to be operating a one-engined 787?  Wink

Simply put, SQ have every Trent series in service or on order bar the Trent 1000.

 checkmark  Yep, you're right. I never thought about that when I was posting my first reply. They have the Trent 500 their 5 A340-500's, the Trent 700 (772) will be on their A330-300's (to be delivered in 2009), they have the Trent 800 (892) on the 777-200ER's and '300's, they will have the Trent 900 on their A380's (coming very soon:D), and they will have the Trent 1000 on their A350XWB's (currently the only engine available on this aircraft, to be delivered to SQ in 2013). If my guess is correct, they will also have the Trent 1000 on their 787-9's, which will be delivered in 2011.  Smile
I don't think any other can make that interesting claim, the closest I can think of is CX, who has every Trent but the 900 and the 1000, but that may change.  Smile
