    Not just Boeing having issues with aircraft it seems:

    IndiGo and Go Airlines India Ltd use the same type of engine made by Pratt & Whitney that’s susceptible to mid-flight shutdowns. Yet IndiGo, one of Airbus SE’s biggest customers, is the only one to encounter turbine failures this year, drawing heavy scrutiny from the aviation regulator.

    Given the number of replacements required and Airbus delivery delays, IndiGo may not able to update all the engines by the fiscal year ending in March

    Well, this is Pratt having issues rather than Airbus in this specific case but it'll blow back on them

    All related to mid-flight shutdowns on A320neos from what I have seen in the news....

    Yes, but it's a Pratt engine going faulty in each case.

    And the pun was sort of intended

    Are IndiGo leasing the engines from Pratt?

    Latest word is that IndiGo's take-off procedures may be a factor. GoAir also use the same engines and have not had issues.

    Opps, look like someone may have collided with a nice new Aircraft:

    So P&W engines aren't capable of delivering their rated thrust without dropping like flies... not good for their credibility.

    Fingal County Council are certainly not competent to be making decisions about the most important piece of infrastructure on the island. They need to stick to badly designed cycle lanes and deciding on whether Mrs Murphy can have her kitchen extension.

    Keeping up a P&W tradition of about 50 years standing so :D

    ( bet they will figure it out eventually - just like they more or less did with the 9D )
