Was it not the A321 NEO they were competing with Monty? TransAtlantic to the US East Coast small market destinations. I see the CAA have pulled the trigger! Not good for FR with delivery’s due in May Monty, on mature reflection the Boeing 737-Max 10 was the main competitor for the A321Neo. Airbus had some problems with their latest fly by wire systems back in the day. Rest assured these issues will be sorted by Boeing, too much at stake not to. Sometimes I feel manufactures push the boundaries too far to gain a competitive advantage.
