Air Asia Xis in negotiations to accelerate deliveries of their A320neo a/c due in 2017-2019 and to bring them forward as fast as possible. These are Leap engine variants. IF CFM can deliver the engines the possibility is that the shortfall in Pratt deliveries will be made up somewhat by CFM and their variant.

Air Asia will take another 10 neo frames above their scheduled deliveries in 2017, if CFM and Airbus can deliver that is.

Qatar have cancelled 4 neos leaving 46 on order....for now.
https://www.flightglobal.com/news/ar...ne-del-431397/

But Pratt do not think their engine deliveries will be on schedule for another year at least. They are guiding 350-400 neo type engines next year for all customers inc Bombardier. We'll see but I doubt it.

Qatar Airways wants Airbus A321neos instead of A320neo, new delivery date

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-qa...KBN1410U0?il=0

Could this also be an indicator that Qatar might be interested in the C Series again?

Qatar Air Plans Move to GE-Powered Airbus A320 in Pratt Blow

Qatar Airways is holding parallel discussions about moving to powerplants supplied by the CFM International alliance of General Electric Co. and Safran SA in response to the engine performance issue, Al Baker said Monday in Doha. Deliveries would start from 2018 if an agreement is concluded.

Al Baker didn’t outline the extent of Qatar Air’s plan to move to the CFM Leap-X engine. A wholesale switch from Pratt’s geared turbofan model would come as a blow to the United Technologies Corp. unit as it seeks to reassure customers that the program is back on schedule.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...blow-for-pratt

Al Baker said that Italy’s Meridiana Fly SpA, in which Qatar Airways is buying a 49 percent stake, will build up a fleet of almost 50 new aircraft over the next five years, including Boeing Co. 737 Max narrow-bodies.

That suggests that a significant proportion of the 60 Max 8s ordered by Qatar are destined for Meridiana, and that only a limited number will go to the Gulf airline itself. The Boeing deal, announced in October, was initially viewed as potentially fatal to the Airbus order.

Meridiana also has a requirement for an unspecified number of wide-body planes, which could be sourced from Boeing or Airbus, or even both, Al Baker said. He declined to say how many aircraft might be needed.

Then again the Pratt shorfall for other airlines won't be so severe and penalties will be avoided on P&W neos in 2017 and 2018 as Qatar was taking a lot.

Certified A321neo aircraft is powered by revolutionary PurePower® Geared Turbofan™ engine

EAST HARTFORD, Conn., Thursday, December 15, 2016

Pratt & Whitney celebrates the Airbus A321neo joint Type Certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The certified A321neo is powered by the Pratt & Whitney PurePower® Geared Turbofan™ engine. Pratt & Whitney is a division of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).

"Today's announcement marks a significant milestone for the PurePower engine family and the A320neo program. We would like to congratulate Airbus and all the dedicated individuals at Pratt & Whitney who supported this achievement. The comprehensive testing Airbus conducted confirmed the engine is meeting its performance targets, which continues to validate our technology and its value to our customers," said Tom Pelland, senior vice president, Pratt & Whitney Commercial Engine Programs. "We value our partnership with Airbus on the A320neo program and achieving the common goal of helping our airline customers continuously improve aircraft performance and operating economics."

Airbus announced Pratt & Whitney's Geared Turbofan engine as an option for its A321neo in December 2010. Six years later, the Geared Turbofan engine's ground-breaking technology is meeting commitments on fuel burn, noise and emissions at customer delivery.

The Pratt & Whitney PurePower family has more than 80 customers, for both announced and unannounced firm and option orders, from more than 30 countries. In-service performance of the PurePower GTF engine has demonstrated its ability to reduce engine fuel consumption by 16 percent, regulated emissions by 50 percent and noise foot print by 75 percent*.

Airbus is based in Toulouse, France.

Pratt & Whitney is a world leader in the design, manufacture and service of aircraft engines and auxiliary power units. United Technologies Corp., based in Farmington, Connecticut, provides high-technology systems and services to the building and aerospace industries. To learn more about UTC, visit the website at www.utc.com or follow the company on Twitter: @UTC.

This press release contains forward-looking statements concerning future business opportunities. Actual results may differ materially from those projected as a result of certain risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to changes in levels of demand in the aerospace industry, in levels of air travel, and in the number of aircraft to be built; challenges in the design, development, production, support, performance and realization of the anticipated benefits of advanced technologies; as well as other risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to those detailed from time to time in United Technologies Corp.'s Securities and Exchange Commission filings.

EASA and FAA certification paves way for the first delivery

Following a comprehensive flight test programme, the A321neo powered by Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower PW1100G-JM engines received joint Type Certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on 15th December 2016.

The documents were respectively signed by EASA’s Certification Director Trevor Woods and by Jeffrey Duven, FAA Manager of the Transport Airplane Directorate - Aircraft Certification Service. Both certificates were handed over to Airbus Executive Vice President Programmes, Didier Evrard, and Airbus Senior Vice President A320 Family Programme, Klaus Roewe.

“The A321neo allows airlines to upsize their fleets while offering a winning combination of unbeatable economics and comfort. This aircraft contributes already some 40 per cent to our single aisle deliveries, and further growing,” said Fabrice Brégier, Airbus President and CEO. ”Today’s certification is a rewarding tribute to all the teams who have been instrumental in making this essential milestone happen.”

The A321neo – the largest member of the A320neo Family - successfully completed a certification programme accumulating over 350 flight hours in more than 130 flights; validating its airframe and systems well beyond their design limits to ensure the aircraft successfully meets all airworthiness criteria. The campaign also confirmed the aircraft is meeting its performance targets in terms of fuel burn and range. Offering significant environmental benefits, including a smaller noise footprint, the aircraft also demonstrated excellent low speed performance capabilities for its operators.

The Pratt & Whitney powered aircraft is the first variant of the A321neo to have received EASA and FAA Type Certification. The A321neo with CFM International LEAP-1A engines will be certified in the coming months.

The A320neo Family is the world’s best-selling single aisle product line with over 4,800 orders from 89 customers, capturing 60 percent share of the market. Thanks to their wide cabin, all members of the A320neo Family offer an unmatched passenger experience in all classes and Airbus’ 18” wide seats in economy as standard.

Too bad relatively few A320neo and A321neo planes powered by the P&W engine will be delivered even in 2017. Airbus may end up selling a lot more A320neo/A321neo planes powered by LEAP-1A engine due to that engine likely to be more available.
