Yes CSeries engine could face similar problems, even Bombardier admitted that PW1500G powerplant requires upgrades.

Ugh, wish we had European regulations over here. AA, DL, and UA should've closed up shop a long time ago. How naive of you to think people would follow regulations and allow large airlines like the US3 or EU3 to fail. People do follow regulations: the loans itself are legal. Giving money away would...Jump to post
I don't think the issue is a matter of security. It is a matter of size. No commercial entity wants to take on a loan of this size in part because when the vultures come out, things can get very unpredictable. So the government steps in because it can absorb losses of this magnitude should it come ...Jump to post

This may not be what the A322 advocates were hoping to see. On the flip side, A321 is so much smaller than the proposed MOM aircraft that it would allow Boeing and Airbus to avoid 1:1 competition in the MOM segment. So on one hand we have A321LR with increased range that takes the bottom of the mar...Jump to post

Any word yet on when/if a PW A319neo will make an appearance?
A350s are due summer 2018 to BA. According to the attached production list, BA's first is No.342 and since they're only just at the 100 mark, I think 2018 is not possible. Iberia should receive its first (219) and possibly, VS (284). Last year BA rescheduled A350 deliveries a bit. First one will ar...Jump to post
