The sense at ISTAT 2011 that P&W had attracted a lot of attention and was building momentum has been confirmed with news that the PurePower engine (we prefer GTF) has won a critical order. This is a fabulous win for P&W at IndiGo.
P&W has opened up a awesome lead over CFM’s LEAP-X. To date the LEAP-X has been selected by COMAC for the C919. It has not won any Airbus neo orders yet though that is bound to change because CFM has a big customer base that will stick with them.
The IndiGo order provides P&W with a big volume in orders – 300 engines is a fabulous boost.
