Default Engines on the GJ's KLM Airbus A330-200

Are these engines the right size, they seem to be a bit smallish!
Are we having a repeat of the GJ 777-300 disaster?

Engines are more accurate on A330 series than B777-300 for sure !

A 330s are equipped with three different engines, PW 4000, RR TRENT 700, GE CF6-80E1.

Which one was chosen by KLM ?

More of a disappointment, given the lack of action, IMPO.

I don't know concerning the size, because I don't have this Model.
The GJ 773ER engines are RR and should be GE90

I think that is a little backwards. The GE-90-115B's are built by General Electric. The RR or Rolls Royce Trents, as stated previously, are the Rolls Royce choice for the 777's. The GE-90-115B's are the engine used on the 777-300ER.

The engines on the KLM look fine to me, but the ones on my US Airways copy seem small (different engine type)

Three documents showing the A 330 engine nacelles.
They are very different, it all depends on the engine manufacturer.
1 RR TRENT
2 PW 4000
3 GE CF6-80E1

I hope it can help.
Check your models.

Jean Pierre.

Sorry for the quality of the documents, photos taken with an ipad and bad lighting.
