For now , it seems there is no competition on narrowbodies. NEO can still outsell MAX even with this backlog. But there is still competition left for widebodies. When orders have been this low it doesn't matter: Airbus: 35 firm vs Boeing: 18 firm One major order will immediately reset the balance.

The CFM Leap can't deliver the same max. thrust as the PW1100G, so if you want to get the most out of your A321NLR, you really need the PW engines. That being said, with today's PW engines your NEO LR is going nowhere... IMO, the A321NEO LR is a great concept, but it's not a B752 yet. :bored: Geez ...
