Maybe well they will buy as part of IAG now. But if the option is there it is Roller all the way.

ANALYSIS: GE opens five-year development effort for 777X engine

GE's preliminary development plan for the GE9X calls for certification in May 2018 on a common core, with a slightly more than 100,000lb-thrust variant to power the 777-9X, a roughly 90,000lb-thrust variant to power the smaller 777-8X and another variant to power the ultra-long-range 777-8LX, says Bill Millhaem, the GE9X programme manager.

That development schedule means the first 777X is unlikely to enter service before mid-2019,

Aha! the picture is finally out!
It may not looks as good as the standard Garuda livery, but the plane will be used for transitional period for Garuda crew, before the arrival of Garuda's actual Boeing 777.

EVA Interested In 777X And 787-10



Taiwan carrier EVA Air, which already is buying Boeing 777-300ERs, is considering the Boeing 777X and Boeing 787-10.

“Both types are on our shopping list, and we are waiting for Boeing to reveal more information with respect to the 787-10 and 777X when the programs are launched,” EVA’s top management says in a statement in response to a query from Aviation Week.

The statement also says EVA is considering ordering Boeing 777 freighters as a replacement for the airline’s Boeing MD-11Fs and Boeing 747-400 aircraft, “though the downturn in the global air cargo market is not supporting a decision to enter into orders with the manufacturer at present. The global air cargo business continues to face difficulties, with demand for air freight falling in 2012’s fourth quarter. Yields are on a continuing downward trend, oil prices remain high and demand for air cargo remains soft.”

Besides being Taiwan’s second major passenger carrier, EVA also is one of the world’s largest air cargo operators. According to the Aviation Week Intelligence Network fleets database it has 60 passenger and cargo aircraft. Types include the 747-400, Airbus A330, Boeing 777-300ER, MD-11F, MD-90 and Airbus A320-family.

EVA management says in its statement that the MD-90s will be gradually phased out, starting next year until 2016, and that during that same time-frame it hopes to phase out of the majority of its 747-400s.

SFO sees a lot of B777s regularly, especially that it is a hub for UA.

What a milestone for Boeing 777. The fact that more large airlines prefer twin engined wide body that four engined, really makes Boeing 777 a popular choice for them.
