The PW6000 will not have enough thrust to power future versions of the
A319/320/321.  P&W is proposing to put the PW8000, a gear turbo fan, on
the next generation of the A320 family.  The PW8000 will share the same
core as the PW6000.  It still is the talk stage.  Nothing is official.
Technically speaking, even the PW6000 on the A318 is not official,
because Airbus has not made the industrial launch of the A318.
