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.
