At first, I thought Emirates would have the first Trent-powered IGW.
With Malaysia receiving its first B777 next month, I'm not sure if
Emirates will be the first one.  I do believe Emirates' first B777
is currently involved in the certification of the Trent-powered IGW.

Also, I find it interesting that Malaysia was able to get earlier
delivery positions than Singapore which ordered the B777 almost two
months before Malaysia did.  I believe Singapore is getting its first
B777 in early May.
