Avianca cancels 20 A320neo orders
Quote:
“The company has reduced its firm commitments to 88 A320neo aircraft from 108,” Avianca says in a 7 January media release. “Previously scheduled firm A320neo-family deliveries in 2020 through 2024 have been deferred or cancelled.”

The airline now expects deliveries of new A320neo-family aircraft from Airbus to resume in 2025 at a rate of 20 annually, continuing into 2029.

China orders yet another 40 A321s

https://www.flightglobal.com/orders-...136193.article

But deliveries of A32xx so far this month are only 15 units and traditionally both Jan and Feb are Pathetic.

Nope, is ex-Onur Air (MSN 835), already long talked about here in this same topic:

Vallair is amongst those customers, but frames destined for conversion are currently on short-term leases to passenger operators.
I previously thought Qantas would take feedstock from their own fleet (Jetstar):

The FlightGlobal article mentions that possible feedstock could be 2 already-owned machines now operating at Jetstar (MSN 1195 & 3717, the first of 2000 vintage and the latter of 2008 vintage). The third one will have to be sourced somewhere else, or could also be one of the leased machines from Jetstar.
However, since December the Bedek-converted 737 Classics (which Qantas operates on behalf of Australian Post) are having load restrictions, so they probably want to take any A321 P2F as soon as they can..

Aha, just as I thought Dirdam. Their inability to make enough A321s is glaring.

But we have to wait over 2 years for it.

On the other hand there was good news for P&W too and Indigo Partners are clearly not fazed by the GTF problems to date. (not the same as Indigo the airline in India but another very big A320neo customer).

http://newsroom.pw.utc.com/2020-01-2...amily-Aircraft

Quote:
Wizz Air Hungary Ltd. (Wizz Air) announced selection of the Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engine to power an order of 166 Airbus A320neo family aircraft. The order consists of 90 aircraft from Wizz Air’s 2016 selection, an additional 56 Airbus A320neo family aircraft and 20 Airbus A321XLR aircraft. This brings Wizz Air’s combined total order to 276 GTF-powered A320neo family aircraft.
Wizz will have the largest European fleet of GTF neos, it seems. IAG is a traditional P&W (client for the ceo but have order LEAP engines for their A321LR fleet to date.

The second part of the ceremony yesterday 02-02-2020, when PK-BDF, the first Airbus A320neo for Batik Air, arrived at CGK after the delivery flight. Sadly at the moment the ceremony should begin, heavy rain started to fall out of the sky. People rushed to find a dry place, but it was also the opportunity to take some time for a closer look of this brandnew A320neo.

Jet2 becomes an A321 operator with first aircraft to join fleet in March, a total of seven ex-Thomas Cook ones will be added.

Airbus have shut down their China plant for now, meaning their production is limited to around rate 54 for the foreseeables. Deliveries so far in February is a dismal 4 after a week

The ongoing Pratt and Whitney problems in India are still ongoing, this is almost traditional now.

I would take this moment to point out that the same Pratt and Whitney engined aircraft in the US and Europe are not displaying anything like the same level of inflight shutdowns and vibration as their cousins in India, especially so with the engine on the left. There does appear to be something in the air over India, perhaps far too much of something for a modern engine to take.

Airbus: 200 PW engines replaced, 100 more to go
Following a spate of PW engine snags on A320 Neos last year, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) had said no Neo with even a single unmodified PW engine would be allowed to fly after May 31, 2020. Airbus and PW’s in past few weeks have logged a replacement rate of one engine daily after that directive.
That deadline was originally the end of January 2020. However as the first A320neo with a Pratt engine was delivered to India in March 2016 it is high time that Pratt got on top of the serial teething issues with this kit.

Given that there are 150 of these in India (100 Indigo and 50 GoAir) I might be inclined to believe Pratt are genuinely on top of things if we have no more of these issues by the end of 2020.
