Well I think it has to do with what was available on the market for lease at the time.
In addition the A318s which are being leased via GECAS will also be arriving with CFM engines due GE's partnership with CFM.

GECAS will only provide GE family engines.
Nope. GECAS will finance whatever the deal requirements are.
Many of their leases are for non-GE powered aircraft which they finance for the airline. It's only for aircraft they order directly (for instance with the Q8 or 6N Boeing codes) which are always GE or CFM powered.
