Jesus it only took three threads. Why not bash GE when GE90 was hell, CFM for the Leap disaster and PW for the whole lots of issue with GTF? Unless you provide with proof what you said is complete nonsense.

1. RR has their hands full trying to iron out problems with the engines they already have.
2. A new program takes AGES to bring to market; by that time, GE/LEAP and PW will have their respective acts together, and the opportunity will have passed.
3. What's the market for this? The need is already being met (even if the options are currently a complete disaster).
4. Airbus has already JUST FINISHED a re-engine of the A320. That's a monumentally expensive process, and they won't be keen to dump the brand new LEAP or GTF option for another new program which will, inevitably, have its own EIS problems.

Cooperation in an alliance with companies like GE, PW, Safran, Honeywell, MTU would improve feasibility / access to additional technology and financing. PW/MTU would maybe be the best.
That fan blade pitch for reverse gives me headaches when imagining the airstreams.. what would feed air to the core engine? How about compressor stall...
