Almost all airlines that have ordered the A220 and also have A320 family aircraft on order, have chosen P&W engines for the latter. This includes JetBlue, Delta, Korean, Swiss. EgyptAir is an exception. I think Airbus should consider offering engine choice on the A220 family as well. The LEAP 1...

IMO trying to replace the A320neo with a A220-500 will be difficult. To match range, payload, cargo capabilities, there would be a lot of changes needed. There would be no containerized cargo on the A220-500. Which is why a two-pronged approach is needed. It is hardly any secret that the A320 isn't...
