During an EZE-PUJ flight on 13/11, operated with 737 MAX 8 LV-HKW, the plane experienced vibration on the right engine, which caused the crew to divert to Resistencia RES at 03:51 LT (GMT-3). Plane was carrying 180 people on board.

Today, Argentina's JIAAC has changed the case from "simple intervention" to "incident" since repeated failure patterns were found.

Arent those vibrations the same issues the 320neo is/has been experiencing?

Looks like the plane was out of service for a few days and repaired at EZE, but looks to be doing fine now, Glad it was taken care of.

The MAX is equipped with the CFM International Leap-1B. Are there issues with the same engines on the NEO? I thought they were with the PW equipped ones.
