India’s Go Air has seen ups and downs. There have been the “on again, off again” bookings.  Now, we have a lessor seeking parts that have been “robbed.”  The airline can’t get moving after going under and blaming Pratt & Whitney and its GTF engine.

As we learned in Paris, the airline failed to pay P&W soon after the first deliveries.  Given the pressure P&W faced, it makes sense that the engine OEM focused on assisting customers who paid for engines.  The BBC has this take on what went wrong at the airline.
