So it seems that

Didn't expect to see anything from the NEO being manufactured beside the winglets for a while.
Cool to see it all starting up already.

Is it my imagination or do those blades look very thick a lot thicker then other engine types. I could be wrong but i always noticed them to be a lot thinner and tapered at the front

I hope Pratt & Whitney hit this out of the park and crap all over the competing engine! It's going to be nice to see them back in the market in a big way!
I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!
