Pratt & Whitney engines ground Go First airline, Wadia alleges Rs 10,000 crore damages

Blaming Pratt & Whitney (P&W) engines for the grounding of Go First airline, Wadia Group Chairman Nusli Wadia asserted that the U.S. company has inflicted damages exceeding Rs 10,000 crore on the airline. Wadia revealed the P&W engines exhibited failures from the earliest delivery 2017, occurring not just once but on multiple occasions. Wadia mentioned that P&W tried to take some steps to solve these flaws but in vain. He further noted that when P&W persuaded Go First to adopt their new engines, it was based on the assurance of reliability and performance up to 1,000 hours before requiring maintenance.
