Along with the other two variants of the 777 program, the 777-200LR (long range) and the 777F (freighter), the 777-300ER are powered exclusively by the General Electric GE90-115BL engine, the world’s largest and most powerful commercial jet engine, producing 115,300 pounds (512 kn) of thrust. The diameter of each engine is equal to the fuselage of a Boeing 737 aircraft.
