Sri Lankan just filed A321neo operations effective July 2017 so if all else fails with China Southern and Virgin America/Alaska, that should be your stop gate!

SAS is having another LEAP engine replaced:

SE-DOX (7489) has been grounded at ARN since 5 April, anyone know what the problem might be?

Engine replacement due to oil system contamination by metallic particles. 2nd engine removal for SES.

I didn't realise there had been any engine changes for the leap. I thought the only issue was with the doors being pinned open?

So both suppliers are having issues.

Pratt also had metal in the oil issues which preceded bigger issues.

I too missed this issue. Both engines pushed bearing/rotor technology. Pratt went higher on relative bearing velocity. CFM went high on relative bearing velocity, but not as high as Pratt; but the LEAP is hotter overall, so I assume that is true of the bearings.

From the looks of this pic, it almost appears that there wouldn't be enough room for the port wing of the Sri-Lanken A321 to clear the starboard wing of the HongKong Express A320! Must be an optical illusion!

You can see there is plenty of clearance by looking at the distance between the sharklets

That it is. The Sri Lankan NEO is sitting at a different angle than the HK NEO. You can see the red sharklet of HK placed between the tails of both aircraft. The Sri L sharklet is right above the titles "Sri Lankan". ;)

It seems the CAAC hasn't certified the A321neo yet. On the A320neo it took them several months to complete certification.
