How can Rolls Royce charge so much more for their A380 engine?
 
Rolls-Royce Trent 900: Unit cost $46 million

Engine Alliance GP7000: Unit cost $13.5 million (2006 dollars)

In this news, Emirates pays $30.5 million for the Trent 900:

$30.5 million is about 2/3 of $46 million.

Maybe it is a European thing, the RR line keeps a European company running. Also, it is always nice to have two sources of engines, in case one has a problem. If your airliner comes with only one variety of engine, and that engine gets grounded, there can be big problems. I am sure that RR has a solid enough reputation.

Rolls-Royce indeed has a solid reputation, but the difference in price is too much.
