(Reuters) - Bombardier Inc (BBDb.TO) on Tuesday said it was reviewing 2017 delivery plans for its CSeries jets, after U.S. engine parts maker United Technologies said it was resolving issues with its geared turbofan (GTF) engines to make them more durable.
United Technologies Corp (UTX.N), the maker of Pratt & Whitney jet engines, held back some GTF shipments to plane makers and offered spares to airlines, which had faced problems with engines already in service.
"Bombardier is working closely with Pratt & Whitney to evaluate and mitigate any potential impact on its customers and will provide a full update on November 2, when it issues its Q3 results," spokeswoman Nathalie Siphengphet said by email.
Both Bombardier and Airbus SE (AIR.PA) have faced delayed deliveries of separate GTF engines.
