Wide Body Report - November 17, 2015

November 17, 2015

KLM has taken delivery of its first Boeing 787.  The airline has a total of 20 on order.

El Al has selected the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 to power its recently ordered 787 Dreaminers.  The 787 comes with an option for either the Trent 1000 or GE's GEnx-1B.

EVA Air has added its 22nd 777-300ER to its fleet.

Etihad has signed a maintenance agreement with GE to service the GE90 engines which power its 777 fleet.

Ethiopian Airlines has announced that it will order at least 10 more Airbus A350-900s over the next two years.  The airline already has 14 aircraft on order.

Emirates, the largest operator of the A380 super-jumbo airline, is awaiting Airbus' decision on whether to launch a re-engined A380 NEO.  Airbus continues to hint that an A380 NEO is being seriously contemplated, as sales for the A380 slowly dry up.
