According to the data at http://www.pdxlight.com/neomax.htm (not updated since November 2015) of the 50 firm orders, 35 (17 Avianca and 18 Frontier) are CFM, and the other 15 are unspecified. Is the plan to certify both engine types regardless, or only certify the A319neo/PW1100 combination if orders come in?
So 35 orders are confirmed to be the LEAP but you are asking if they plan on only certifying the PW?
Other way around. I assume certifying with the CFM is a given, so I'm asking if they plan on certifying with P&W regardless of orders, or if they'll only do that if the orders come in.
Makes more sense now. Also to answer your question about the engine designation in the aircraft type, I think it simply comes to the engines being completely different.
