The first production Leap engines were delivered a few weeks back but CFM themselves were coy about which customer would get them.

Pegasus expect another 6 neo deliveries in 2016 after that one.

With the factory pileup of mainly engineless P&W neos reaching around 20 now Airbus will want these out the gate as fast as they can make them.

Airbus delivers its first aircraft produced in the USA

JetBlue receives A321 from Airbus team in Mobile, Alabama

The first ever delivery of an aircraft from the Airbus U.S. Manufacturing Facility took place today, April 25th, in Mobile, Alabama. The entire team of employees from the American assembly line gathered to present their very first completed product, an Airbus A321, to JetBlue. On hand for the occasion were executives from Airbus, JetBlue senior management, including President and CEO Robin Hayes, and a broad collection of dignitaries from the Gulf Coast region.

“I am immensely proud to be here to participate in this first delivery from Mobile,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer – Customers. “Going from breaking ground on this facility three years ago to handing over the first Alabama-produced A321 today is an amazing accomplishment. It’s a testament to how well executed this project was and how strong the teamwork has been here in Mobile and throughout Airbus. The Airbus U.S. Manufacturing Facility has brought together all the best aspects of our other assembly lines around the world, and it shows how Airbus people work hand in hand with our partners to deliver great aircraft to our customers.”

Airbus announced its commitment to build a single-aisle assembly line in Mobile, Alabama in 2012, and less than one year later, broke ground on the $600 million (U.S.) facility. The ceremonial inauguration of the plant came in September 2015. The aircraft delivered today, a JetBlue A321, successfully had its first flight on March 21st, 2016.

In addition to the JetBlue A321 delivered today, there are currently nine other A320 Family aircraft in production at the facility. Airbus anticipates delivering four aircraft per month from the Mobile plant by the end of 2017. The initial deliveries will all be A320 Family aircraft with the Current Engine Option (CEO), but will begin transitioning to New Engine Option (NEO) derivatives in late 2017.

In addition to hundreds of new Airbus jobs the project has brought to the local community, the Mobile area has seen many Airbus suppliers open new facilities in the region, providing even more employment and a parallel boost to the local economy. Airbus is proud to boast that 87 percent of its new employees are from the Gulf Coast region, with nearly one third being U.S. military veterans.

Demonstrating the adage “The Sun Never Sets on Airbus” – Airbus aircraft are now produced around the clock, 24 hours a day, at facilities in: Mobile, Alabama; Hamburg, Germany; Toulouse, France; and Tianjin, China.

Why is Akbar al-Baker always threatening to switch whole planes (A320n into 737m) type and not just engines?
And why is Airbus not simply dodging all his threats by pointing to the other engine options available? Isn't that the very reason why you offer multiple engines in the first place? To say, 'if you do not like this one, choose another"...

Also, a noise from a hydraulic pump while taxiing is nowadays reason enough to drop a plane type, really? Laughable.

There are also hydraulic issues in hot climates, that might be their biggest issue which is not directly related to the specific engine type.

I don't think that Airbus is too worried about it. They also know that Qatar Airways is mostly talk and no action when it comes down to it. When they are talking directly to each other it will be much more formal business negotiations.

That was great post!! Do you know other orders placed for Airbus 321 include: Indian Airlines (74), IndiGo (100), AerCap (70), Aeroflot (31), Lufthansa (142), Skybus (65 A319), Air One (26), Hong Kong Airlines (30), Tiger Airways (66), S7 Airlines (25), British Airways (102), Air France (88), Saudia (22 A320), DAE Capital (52 ), Air Arabia (44), Wizz Air (132) and Etihad (20).

Delta goes on a shopping spree: an additional order for 37 a321ceo after the huge CS100 order. This will bring Delta's order for the a321 to 80. The newly-ordered aircraft will be delivered concurrently with existing A321 orders through 2019.

I guess the main reason why Delta went for ceo instead of neo is the extra discount for these last ceo frames as Airbus is very eager to fill its production gap for the ceo as it transitions to the neo. Speaking of that, when is Airbus planning to complete the transition to the neo (and end production of ceo)?

Delta orders additional Airbus A321 jets

Delta has reached an agreement with Airbus to acquire 37 additional A321s as part of its efforts to renew its narrowbody fleet. The fuel-efficient A321s will replace older-generation jets, including the MD-88.

The agreement follows an announcement Thursday that Delta would become the U.S. launch customer for Bombardier’s C-Series small narrowbody aircraft...

I think if Airbus was smart, they should send a couple of A320neo's powered by PW1127G engines to the southeastern USA and do nothing but simulate flights in high-temperature/high-humidity environments from June to September 2016 to "work out the bugs" on that engine.

This is not the first time Pratt & Whitney had problems with new-production engines--the JT9D built for the Boeing 747-100 models had huge reliability issues with the front fans; it wasn't until the circa 1972 they finally fixed them.
