Money, Money is the reason. Same with the 757, they were going to release Just PW and put a price tag on every other expansion, Just like oh I don't know every other aircraft they've released. The community Complained enough that they canned the engine expansion. The Resounding call from the community is Transparency and Reasoning, Neither of which we've got

As long as there is no clarity in the plans, I and many people will not make the purchase of the 767.

That's rather presumptive of you, since I see the 767 fleet using both the CF6-80A/80C models as much as the PW JT9D-7R/PW4000 engines. The one which you think is not used frequently is the RB211-524H-T of which I will agree there are very few operators now.

Majority of Delta's fleet is PW and ALL of United's is PW. I wouldn't go that far!

Majority? Neah, just checked Delta's fleet and saw except for the deliveries between 1989 and 1998, which accounts for about 30 aircraft, the rest 47 are powered by CF6-80C's. Also prior to retirement, American had CF6's too on it's 767 fleet. It's UA that was the exception going for all PW powered 767's except for the ex-CO birds which were also powered by CF6's.

Regards,

Swapnil.

No, I have Delta's fleet data from the company employee website. Currently 30 PW powered 767-300s, 26 GE powered 767-300s. You obviously can't include -400s since no one ever ordered PWs for those, nor is that what Captain Sim modelled for us.

My quote stands, the 2 largest passenger 767 operators in the world use majority PW.

On what basis? Because all the data in the world is contradicting that.

While it may be true that DAL has more PW birds then GE birds, the reality is that the GE birds are younger in general compared to the PW birds. The PW birds will be on the chopping block soon enough with 330neos replacing them, while the GE birds will most likely stick around for a little longer. In saying that UAL was the 2nd largest pax 767 customer, it was in fact AAL having a vastly greater number of 767-300ERs over UAL. With that, all of the former AAL 767s were GE powered, with the TWA jets being dumped quickly after the merger was complete. That's just for passenger jets. GEs dominate the freighter market as well for the 767, with nearly all converted freighters and all new build freighters being GE powered. It's safe to say that the GEs hold a sizeable market share on the 767, and it's inclusion in this product line should be a given, especially considering the former product line included GEs.

Indeed, and in fact it was the loss of market to GE and to an extent RR in the widebody engine market with stiff competition that PW has exited it to focus on only the GTF and other more smaller markets namely turboprops and bizjet engines.
