  • Narrowbody Engine Battle: Where Do Things Stand

    Pratt & Whitney has cut into CFM's lead for Airbus A320NEOs it will power, but it still trails in terms of customer numbers and aircraft under power.

    With JetBlue having opted for the Pratt & Whitney PW1100G for its 40 A320NEOs, here is the break down between the engine maker and rival CFM International Leap-1A in terms of the number of NEOs each is powering so far
    (reflecting the latest figures the two engine makers have put out) :

    Of course, the story changes when you look at the new-engine narrowbody market share. There, CFM has a commanding lead because of the exclusivity it has with the Leap-1B on the 737 MAX, giving it around 1,500 aircraft engines now slated to be Leap-powered (CFM also counts 215 Comac C919s under Leap-1C power).

    Pratt, of course, has CSeries exclusivity, but the Bombardier figure -- orders and commitments -- remains shy of 300 aircraft.
