Hi pilots, I have noticed that wrong engines are quite a problem on the Airbus A321. A few months ago, I addressed an issue with the British Airways and Air Canada A321. It’s pretty similar to what happened this time.
As you may know, there are two main subvariants of the A321-200: the -21 and the -23. The difference is in the engines. The A321-211 has GE CF6-5B3/P or /2P engines. The A321-231 has IAE V2533-A5 engines. The GE engines have a larger fan diameter but are shorter; the IAE ones are smaller in terms of diameter but are oblong in shape and have mixed exhausts.
In the preview, the engines shown are the IAE V2500 series, which makes it an A321-231.
However, as you can see, the engines have changed to the GE ones during the flight.
So which one is correct?
I searched on Google using the registration (RP-C4111) and it was supposed to be an A321-211. So what it means is that the preview is wrong.

Thank you for acknowledging!
