Air France-KLM choses the GEnx

Alexander Juniac, chairman of Air France-KLM has chosen the GEnx engine, developed by General Electric, to equip fifty future Boeing 787 fleet of Franco-Dutch group.
Mr. Juniac has negotiated foot to foot for three years, before opting for the U.S. at the expense of engine Trent 1000, developed by the British Rolls Royce.
Negotiations with the rival engine started in September 2011 when Air France announced a giant order for 110 aircraft, including fifty farms.
At the time, the Franco-Dutch group had chosen to modernize its aging fleet with 60 long-haul Airbus A350 and Boeing Dreamliner fifty. A contract valued, list price, at $ 12 billion.
