      American Airlines turned its back on P&W Very Many Moons Ago, mostly R/Royce on long haul aircraft and all G/E on 737 's. except very early models. There is definitely a long term disagreement here going back to the mid 80's plus there is a huge risk having American on the order books because they are still very much in the red. Very good amount of already on order books for P & W Geared Turbo Fan Engine on the Neo320 so while it would have been nice to win away from G/E it does not really hurt to much
