Out of interest, can a 777F take a Trent 1000/GEnx or are you stuck with the 4 holers mentioned above?
A GEnx will fit in a 777F, but I think some disassembly may be necessary first. The GEnx is designed so the fan module can be easily removed (both to facilitate shipping and for repair/refurb). The fan on the GEnx-1B is actually slightly larger in diameter than the PW4000/112" so getting an intact engine through the 120" tall 777F cargo door would be tough.
I'm not as familiar with the Trent 1000 so I can't really comment.
