Engine delays remain a major issue to OEMs in 2019, with CFM announcing that it has fallen further behind at Boeing for LEAP-1B. This news comes shortly after Air Lease indicating that they expect delays at Pratt & Whitney for A320neos to continue to 2020, and Rolls-Royce announcing that it would not full update its Trent fleet with repairs before 2021.

CFM has now stabilized production of the LEAP-1A for the A320 family, producing 16-17 engines per week, recovering from a delay three months ago. For Boeing, the program remains behind schedule, with an aim to deliver 30 LEAP 1-B engines by June. CFM is targeting the second quarter for being back on time in deliveries to Boeing.
