Boeing is testing a 777 with Trent 800's that's painted in the livery of
Cathay Pacific.  However, I read an article in Aviation Week that said
Thai International would be the first to operate a Trent-powered 777.
My question is, why would Boeing not fly the test plane in Thai colors if
the carrier will be the launch customer?  Also, which carriers have
selected the Trents to power their 777's?
