This is the first A321neo for United out of Airbus' Mobile, AL plant. "Aviation Flights" shows 11901 will be N24513, but other sites including the United Fleet Site say N14509. "Aviation Flights" was wrong about N14511, too.
atdb.aero shows the registration as N24509

I have seen some chatter here about 321 engine issues. Is this just a one off equipment change or could it be part of something bigger? Just curious. Thanks!
Domestic narrowbody equipment assignments for flights 6+ months out are really just placeholders. When they get closer to finalizing the schedule and consider the best overall equipment rotation, then they will update with finalized equipment assignments.

There’s no way they would practically know about engine issues 6 months in advance. But, given recent guidance on expected equipment deliveries, it’s likely that they will have fewer new planes (both Max and Neo) for various reasons, and if they put placeholders in the schedule for those newer types, but then have to revise for reduced availability, those sorts of swaps will happen when the schedule gets finalized.
