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 ?
