definitely don't believe that figure of 80% market share for the V2500 on the A320 Family.
|Quoting Milan320 (Reply 6):|
AC uses CFM56 on all their A320 I believe, too! Not that it's exactly that hot here
|Quoting KL808 (Reply 8):|
Its probably calculated from the point where the engine was offered, not from the get go of the A320 program.
|Quoting KcrwFlyer (Reply 12):|
true, dut does it matter when theres a 16,000 ft. runway in the mix?
|Quoting TheSonntag (Reply 15):|
I took the quote from Wikipedia.de, so there is no guarantee I am right. In fact, I have never flown IAE A320s yet, as Germanwings, LH, EZY all use CFMs.
|Quoting Tnsaf (Reply 13):|
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
|Quoting Gearup (Reply 10):|
don't know where in Canada you live Milan320 but the humidex in Toronto is 42 degrees C today, gasp!
|Quoting SU184 (Reply 23):|
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.
