As far as I know, only -200LR and -300ER engine used is the GE90

"By early 1999, the Trent 8104 had exceeded 110,000lb thrust on a static testbed. The engine's swept fan blades resulted in an increase and better repartition of mass flow, which meant higher thrust with the same overall engine dimensions. Lastly, these blades proved more resilient against Foreign Object Damages (FODs). All these elements made the British manufacturer confident that a scaled-up 115,000lb version would be an effective proposal to power the 777X.At this stage, Boeing was prepared to pick just one engine manufacturer to be the sole supplier for the 777X program. With a market for an estimated 500 airframes, the 777-200X/-300X production was considered as too small by GE and P&W to have more than one engine supplier. Only RR was prepared to have competition. As two of the three manufacturers were pushing for exclusivity, however, no matter which engine was selected it was to be the sole supplier for the 777X. The winner would have the best business case for a 115,000lb engine, with the possibility of having to grow to yet more powerful thrust ratings. In late May, each of the big three engine manufacturers submitted their bids to Boeing. GE submitted proposals for the GE90-11XB, R-R the Trent 8115, and P&W the PW4115. In the engine competition, most airlines were supporting the engine manufacturer they had selected for their respective 777 fleets, and should Boeing not pick the one they wanted they would have their interest in the 777X altered. Nonetheless, none but Cathay was believed to make a radical move

Another words, Neither BA nor CX will order the -300ER/-200LR because it will not be powered by RR and because they are both full of political crap :)Dan
