Who's winning the dog fight for market supremacy?
About this Idea
The A320neo is proving to be a success with 736 (03/10/19) of aircraft in-service and 3101 (03/10/19) on-order. Entering into the market in 2016 with launch customer Lufthansa, it is fast becoming a workhorse aircraft for airlines around the world.
Looking at the engine orders across the world, it is evident that CFM’s LEAP-1A continues to be dominant and will be in a commanding position for the few years. However, Pratt & Whitney still have chance to close the gap by winning the remaining unannounced orders.
The two aircraft engine makers have successfully accelerated production in 2019 though they are still battling with supply-chain stress and initial entry into service issues.
