Airbus, expressed confidence it can deliver 200 A320neos and 700 commercial aircraft overall this year despite continuing in-service problems plaguing A320neos powered, by Pratt & Whitney PW1100G geared turbofans. The problems, ranging from carbon seal defects to premature combustor liner wear, mean that by the end of June the Toulouse, France-based manufacturer had delivered only a third of the GTF-powered aircraft it had expected to ship by now, while 30 to 35 remain parked without engines, Airbus CEO Tom Enders admitted in a call with analysts on Thursday. Neverthless, he said the 200-delivery projection for both GTF– and CFM Leap-1A-powered neos “is still a realistic target.”
