Is that plane being delivered to Lufthansa powered by the P & W engine or the LEAP engine?

P&W, the Leap is testing away steadily and was certified in November.

Airbus give up. They blame "documentation"

Now the A320 neos start piling up rapid in Hamburg.,

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articl...-several-weeks

Quote:
Airbus Group SE postponed the first delivery of its A320neo model airliner by at least several weeks as it addresses issues with documentation for the aircraft, adding to the woes for the single-aisle plane that constitutes the majority of the company’s production.

The delayed delivery to Deutsche Lufthansa AG comes just about a week after Indian airline IndiGo disclosed that it had been told its first jet would be late and three weeks after Qatar Airways Ltd., originally set to be the first customer, put back deliveries, citing engine issues. Airbus had planned to deliver the plane to Lufthansa this week.
Lets see what the finger pointing game is next week.

Quote:
The planemaker cited documentation issues without offering specifics. A spokesman said further detail wouldn’t be available until early next week. Documentation typically refers to information concerning a plane’s maintenance and operations, some of which needs to be approved by local authorities before an airline can begin operating a new plane type.

“The engine is ready to enter service and is meeting or exceeding all performance requirements for fuel burn, noise and emissions,” Sara Banda, a Pratt & Whitney spokeswoman, said by telephone. She referred all questions about documentation requirements to Airbus.

I wouldn't be surprised if the documents issue could only happen because it was the holiday season. With the engineers working overtime coming up with a last minute band-aid fix for the engines issues the administrative department could have been low on staff over Christmas. If so somebody will find a large pile of documents to formalize on his/her desk on Monday.

As for the engine issues. The P&W engines are already certified so they are good to go and be delivered. I don't think it will be such a problem that it won't be fixed very soon. I don't expect any major delays, delivering 1 month late is not really a big issue.

I read a few different article that its a fan blade problem in the engine and its putting more stress on other complainants in the engine. The issue effects the overall performance / fuel efficiency of the plane.

Latest new about Airbus A320

Airbus has postponed the delivery of the first narrow-body jetliner A320neo to early 2016, due to documentation problems with the plane.The company earlier announced it would deliver the first revamped version of A320, called A320neo (new engine option) to its customer by the end of 2015.

December orders:

http://www.airbus.com/company/market/orders-deliveries/


Not a large order festival like the last couple of years. Airbus didn't have to beat Boeing in the last month of the yearly order race as they were already way ahead.

The main part were the already announced 20x A321neo for Turkish and 15x A320neo for the IAG airlines. Plus some smaller orders by Air New Zealand 1x A320ceo, China 2x A320ceo, Private customer 1x A319neo.

Cancellations:
South African Airways: 10x A320ceo (converted to an A330 order)
Transaero: 6x A320neo (because of it's bankruptcy)


2015 order total:
net: 897 - (ceo: 47, neo: 850)
gross: 966 - (ceo 105, neo: 861)

A320neo order total: 4,471

Now I hope American carriers will buy the A320 family with the NEO like hotcakes to take a stand against its main rival, Boeing, in terms of fuel efficiency and ability to carry a bit more passengers. I wonder though if the A321 is a better aircraft to order to replace the US Big 3's fleet of Boeing 757s than the Boeing 737MAX...

If you look at the orderbook you see that A321neo outsells the 737-9 MAX by a very big margin. Since Boeing has not revealed the numbers per version it's not exactly clear how many 737-9s they have sold, but it's supposed to around a ratio of 80 to 20 in favor of the A321. The market has clearly decided that the A321neo is a better airplane then the 737-9.

But when it come to 757 replacement the US big 3, who are also the big 3 when it comes to operating the 757, it's kind of a mixed bag on how they want to replace the 757s.

Delta is the largest 757 passenger operator (currently 126) which they stay for year to come has not yet order the neo or the MAX. Instead they will start to replace their 757s by a mix of A321 ceo (45 on order) and 737-900ERs (70 on order).

United Airlines is the 2nd largest operator (currently 91). They have ordered the 737-9 MAX as their 757 replacement, but only for the domestic 757s. As they are also using their 757 heavily on the smaller transatlantic routes it will be interesting to see if they will also order for the A321neo, especially the LR variant. But United is also one of the main airlines that Boeing is talking to about the development of their new "middle of the market" plane which is expected to be formally announced in the next couple of years.

American Airlines has the most straight forward strategy right now as the 3rd largest 757 operator (currently 64). They have orders for 100x A321 neo's and 100x 737-8 MAX. It's very clear that their 757s will be replaced by the A321s and the current generation A320 and 737s by a mix of 737-8s and A321neo's.

We can conclude that when it comes to actual replacement of the 757s it's not yet clear victory for the A321neo. But what we will start to see is that other airlines that don't operate the 757 will start to use their A321neo's more and more like the US big 3 use their 757s. And there you have the reason why it should now be considered as the main 757 replacement until Boeing launches it's new middle of the market model.


But the US Big 3 will still be very interesting for Boeing with the MAX and Airbus with the neo. They currently operate more then 1,300 current gen. A320 family and 737 family planes (with even more on order), with just 300 neo's and MAX's on order. It will be a very fierce competition between Airbus and Boeing to win those very large new MAX and neo orders that these 3 airlines will be placing in the years to come to replace the current A319, A320, 737-700 and 737-800 fleets.

They can lock in verrry good $ prices now so maybe so i they will wait. I think Norwegians A320s will be available for prompt delivery anyway.

However you do perhaps forget the power of Mickos favorite bank that underwrites the big deals for Boeing....namely the EXIM bank of New York.

Boeing could have maxed out their quota in Exim by now, one never knows.
