Could you give me an idea of the RR, GE and PW powered fleets around the
globe? These companies can power most of the commercial aircraft can't
they? (Boeing, Airbus, McDonnell-Douglas, Fokker, Saab)

Are air-line companies that loyal that they power their whole fleet
(from small to big) with RR engines, for example?

I count BRR and Allison engines as RR engines, obviously.

Hopefully any-one will be able to shed a light on this.

Thanks

As you can see I won't get any useful info on their internet sites.
