    Lufthansa today became the second airline to sign up to operate both the Bombardier CSeries and Airbus A320NEO (new engine option).

    Republic Airways has made a similar deal. In Republic's case, there has been widespread expectation the NEO could eventually supplant the CSeries, although the airline denies that is the case.
    In Lufthansa's case that is unlikely. The airline is know for its somewhat eclectic mix of aircraft. What is more, the CSeries will go to Swiss International Air Lines.

    Lufthansa is taking its NEOs -- 5 A321s and 25 A320s -- with Pratt & Whitney PW1100G geared-turbofans, giving it some commonality with the CSeries powerplant.
