One of the most important commercial aircraft programs is the A320neo family. In the narrow-body segment, it is currently the best seller. That segment accounts for about 70% of all commercial aircraft sales, so being the leader is sufficient reason to pay close attention to the status of the program.
The A320neo program made its first delivery late last year. Airbus has had to overcome engine supply-chain challenges that slowed deliveries. As the following image shows, there are several A320neo “gliders” in Toulouse that appear complete but are waiting for engines.
