A321neo's:
Airbus MSN 11708 made its first test flight as Airbus D-AZXF on the 19th. The fleet website indicates this frame is expected to be N14507. However, both the 'Aviation Flights' and the 'Airbus Hamburg Finkenwerder News' have this frame tagged as N14504:

Now I'm curious which one it will really be!

(I need to get a life...)

As noted above, this frame is tagged as N14504, not N14507. I guess we'll have to wait until delivery.

Ferried EWR-IAD, then flew IAD-AMS Friday, returning AMS-IAD Saturday, but now scheduled to ferry IAD-ORD-PVG on Sunday. So looks like repaired but now going in for MX:
