Airbus halts A320neo jet deliveries, tests after engine snag

The Airbus A320neo takes off during its first flight event in Colomiers near Toulouse southwestern France

A senior official of Indigo confirmed receiving the recommendations by Pratt & Whitney as well as EASA with respect to the A320neo aircrafts powered by PW1100G-JM engines. As a precaution, aircraft with these engines will be addressed in a manner consistent with the operational instructions issued by Airbus and coordinated between Airbus and Pratt & Whitney as needed. If an aircraft has only one engine with the aft hub modification, it must stop flying extended routes over water within one flight cycle, EASA says. "We have three aircraft with the particular engine configuration which have been flagged by EASA", said IndiGo.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviationofficial said IndiGo has three such aircraft, which have been grounded.

IndiGo has withdrawn three A320 neo aircraft from service effective from February 9, 2018. "But we feel it was the best decision in the interest of our safe and reliable operations", IndiGo said in a statement. Airbus said Friday the air safety regulator has warned about A320neo in-flight engine shutdowns, according to the journal.

Pratt spent billions to develop the new geared engines and some issues are common, but that has meant severe headaches for Airbus and its airline customers.

Elba had previously ruled out getting married again, telling ESSENCE in August 2017 , "Am I ever gonna get remarried? ". He told Essence previous year that he didn't expect to tie the knot again, calling marriage "an institution of sorts".

In total, about thirty engines, one or two engines per plane, are affected, according to a source close to the problem. "In full and complete compliance with the requirements, none of GoAir aircraft have two of these engines on the same aircraft", it said, adding that no aircraft is required to be grounded.

Several A320neo family aircraft have experienced engines failures in flight or during take-off, EASA states.

This is the second problem affecting Pratt & Whitney GTF engines since the start of their marketing, the first causing delays in 2017 in delivery of the A320neo, the re-engined version of Airbus' single-aisle plane.
