Engine issues stall A320neo deliveries

Problems seem to be with new Geared Turbofan engines
Problems with new engines are forcing Airbus to renegotiate delivery schedules for the A320neo, it has been reported, and the manufacturer has told some airlines the aircraft type will be delayed by two months.
Airbus has already missed a 2015 target for delivering the first A320neo, something it blamed on issues with documentation for new Pratt & Whitney engines.
Industry sources have Reuters news agency that there are delays in deliveries of the engine maker’s newly developed Geared Turbofan engine.
As previously reported, Qatar Airways and Lufthansa have been squabbling over which will be the A320neo’s launch customer.
