Re: Big engines planes (2030+) - how will look like?

Does it pw1100 turboprop? ))

Re: A321LR Versus XLR

This might still improve because Pratt & Wittney have not yet delivered the more powerful engine they once promised. They started testing the PW1135G-JM back in 2016 but right now that thing is not even mentioned on their websites. why to use bigger engines? to burn more fuel and got less range?
