That was only true of last year - overall IAE has slightly less than half of the A320 market, which isn't bad considering that it started out several years behind CFM. The V2500s have slightly better fuel burn, the CFMs have slightly better maintenance costs, and in the end it all washes out.

V2500 may be a slightly more modern engine, but the CFM56 offers more commonality with the 737 and A343, which will be factor for many airlines (e.g. Easyjet has a large fleet of 737NGs and A319s both with the CFM56.

I wish our fleet of A319/320's had the CFM56 engines. My lungs have been sucking burned engine oil smoke from the V2500's for the last 12 years. I have written our Safety department many times about this. They keep saying it's not hazardous. Yeah right!

I believe the LH A321 fleet has V2500s. I think one of the reasons they went that way was to add that engine to the portfolio of LHT. 80% is not correct, but they have been a stronger competitor at least splitting the market in the last few years.

HP has the V2500's on their 50+ A320's and 30+ A319's. I don't know if that means it is better in hot/high conditions. I know that hot/high performance has been a major factor in HP decisions in the past (757 over A321, etc).
For the A320 family, there are 2483 delivered A/C (according to Airbus) of which 1362 are CFM-powered (according to CFM) and 1129 are IAE powered (according to IAE). Now the totals don't come out exact due to the different times each website updates their data (IAE listing + CFM listing = Airbus listing-2), but since they're close enough, this amounts to CFM with 55% of the current market and IAE with 45%. Now as deliveries increase, IAE's share will definitely increase due to their backlog, but not to 80%.

You're absolutely right, but LH ordered V2500's for A320's as first, then switched to CFM56's after the engine failed to meet performance and dates guarantees, after fixes were made, they ordered it for their A321's as it seems to be performing better in higher power ratings, then back to CFM on their A319's. The selling point for V2500's is price/support package, as these engines are required to be removed from the wings after only 4000hrs, word of maintenence people.

Quoting Gearup (Reply 10): don't know where in Canada you live Milan320 but the humidex in Toronto is 42 degrees C today, gasp!
Man, that is hot. I'm in Sweden on contract these days, but I remember when I left Montreal a month ago it was a hot hell hole. I recall friends saying from Toronto that it was pretty much the same there ... perhaps Airbus should do some hot weather testing should in Toronto/Montreal
I accept bribes ... :-)
25 Milan320: What about the A319CJ then? I recall that it was offered before only with the IAE engines, but now customers have a choice of CFM or IAE engines. Whic
26 Tom_EDDF: I think LH also changed their mind on the V2500 after the SuperFan desaster. Initially, LH opted for the V2500 for their A320 series aircraft and the
