Kuwait Airways has selected the General Electric GE90-90B engine, a derated version of the 410kN (92,000lb)-thrust -92B, to power two Boeing 777-200IGWs on firm order. The carrier switched its 747-400 contract to a firm order for two 777s for delivery in 1998, with an option on a third. The higher-thrust -92B engine is scheduled to undergo flight tests on the 777 in October.
