As the plane shortly climbed to 39.000 feet, was it possibly just the well known by an faulty placed fire sensor, which wrongly send alarms, when the anti-icing system of the front of the nacelle of the engine is on and the jet is more than 36.000 feet high or so?
This issue shall be solved in spring 2020 or so.

OK, this is bad. It is an uncontained engine failure

As I know, Air Baltic has chosen the P1521G version for their A220-300. The jet is the 100th, so it is brand new (2 month?). if they have not mixed the engines with an older one, the engines shall also be brand new.

The French BEA reported the left hand engine suffered a technical failure, the aircraft diverted to Bordeaux. The occurence was rated a serious incident and has been delegated to the US NTSB, who are already investigating three occurrences of the same type that Swiss had suffered in 2019, see Incident: Swiss BCS3 near Paris on Jul 25th 2019, engine shut down in flight, Incident: Swiss BCS3 near Geneva on Sep 16th 2019, uncontained engine failure and Incident: Swiss BCS3 near Paris on Oct 15th 2019, engine shut down in flight.

Nice new record on number of posts before Boeing gets brought up?

Airbus especially the clusterf*** that is P&W is sitting on a gold mine with this program, I hope they find a fix to these issues and right the ship. I don’t think these engine issues are as problematic as the recent new engine programs had for now, but definitely a cause for concern.

The number of uncontained failures is certainly concerning. Has the report been published on the Swiss one at Paris yet?

Do you have any actual evidence of Bombardier/P&W/Airbus Canada duping the regulators?

Perhaps this will make BT reassess flying their 220s above FL280 ?
