FARNBOROUGH: Airbus continues to forge ahead in single-aisles

It may be playing catch up with Boeing on widebodies, but in the single-aisle market Airbus has a clear head-start on its rival. While Seattle dithered about its narrowbody strategy at the turn of the decade, Airbus committed in 2010 to re-powering its existing A320 family with a choice of two engines. The Pratt & Whitney PW1100G-powered version of the 150-seat A320neo – due to fly for the first time in September – will be handed over to launch customer Qatar Airways in the final quarter of 2015, almost two years ahead of the 737 Max.
