Boeing has always planned for the 777x-years ago Rolls Royce built an engine for the 777x-the first to pass 100,000 static thrust and to go on to 110,000 static thrust. It was the Trent 8104,GX paid Boeing $500 million for exclusivity on the 777x-thats why RR 'lost' the contract for the 777x. read it, it's all on widipedia,under Trent 8104.

Unless I am mistaken, the wings and the engines are British designed and manufactured in Bristol UK, the cell itself (fuselage to you) was conceived and built in Germany.
France mostly assembles Airbus in Toulouse (when they are not on strike!) but has very little input in it apart from the Mercier landing gear.
Ah, for fiscal reason they have registered the head office in France! LOL

I love the French when they try to appropriate the efforts of other countries and claim all the glory.

some of the engines are.. the ones that explode in the sky..
otherwise we have french snecma engines... germany only makes the back fuselage. airbus toulouse headquarters has 10,000 French engineers... 10,000 engineers that work full time conceiving these incredible state of the art planes. even boeing cant compete....

Just to correct some of you rubbish:

Airbus employs around 63,000 people at sixteen sites in four European Union countries: France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Spain. Final assembly production is based at Toulouse, France; Hamburg, Germany; Seville, Spain; and, since 2009, Tianjin, China. Airbus has subsidiaries in the United States, Japan, China and India.

Powerplants:

Airbus A300 : General Electric CF6-50 engines

Airbus A310 : General Electric CF6-45B2 and Pratt & Whitney JT9D-7R4. engines

Airbus A318: BMW Rolls-Royce BR715s, CFM56-9s, or Pratt & Whitney PW6000s engines.

Airbus A319: CFM International LEAP-X or Pratt & Whitney PW1000G, engines.

Airbus A320: CFM International LEAP-X or Pratt & Whitney PW1000G engines.

Airbus A330: General Electric CF6, Pratt & Whitney PW4000, or Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines

Airbus A340: Rolls-Royce Trent 500.engines.

Airbus A350: Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines.

Airbus A380: Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engines.

Airbus doesn't use Snecma engines. France has NEVER been able to make powerfull engines and has ALWAYS used US of British engines.

Alexander really does not know what he is talking about. all new aircraft have glitches. the dreamliner is by no means a disaster. all customers are happy with the new aircraft and are ordering more. alexander should get an education
as to what is going on in the world.

Families of AF 447, a plane downed largely by its ill conceived fly by wire system, are no doubt less in awe of Airbus' "state of the art" design than you are!

the crash of the french made state of the art plane was due to pilot error. the captain was sleeping while rookies were flying the plane. they f-- ked up and the plane went down. the captain was with his girlfriend.. it was not a serious crew if you ask me.
fly by wire was introduced by the French with the Mirage planes. Remember the 7 day war?

Pilot error yes, but not discovered until it was too late. Why?

The poorly designed fly by wire system did not permit the other pilots to realize the rookie was trying to climb out of a stall.

Would never have happened in a Boeing.

BTW, weren't the problematic pitot tubes French designs?

Alexandre doesn't know what is a pitot tube; he thinks it's to make sausages.
