NEO Order Status: CFM vs P&W


With the Paris air show less than a month away, we'll be paying close attention to the order books for the main new airframe programs. 

CORRECTION: we omitted a couple of carriers from our engine count last week. I've now revised this. Thanks to the eagle-eyed reader who pointed out the error.

There are 2,068 NEOs on firm order with engines selected for 941 1,219 of those NEOs. Only announced orders are included in this count.

CFM is currently in the lead with its new Leap engine. 571 629 NEOs will be powered by Leap engines and 370 590 will be powered by Pratt & Whitney geared turbofan engines.
