Is it correct to conclude that the other guys lost the race and now that
GE will command a huge lead over the 90k pound guys, there is little
chance of the other guys ever catching up and as a result, future 777s
will all be GE engined since the others will have dropped out of the
race ?

Or will the market for smaller 777s remain big enough for Boeing to
continue production of the older models which can be engined by R&R ,
PRATT as well as GE ?
