What happened to 3078? I know they deliver out of order - especially since they are coming from factories on two continents, but this aircraft seems far out of sequence.
Hamburg built aircraft seem to lag BFM by quite a margin. I raised 3078 on another forum, and feed back was there is just a large amount of backlog at the factory. There are three out of four of the backlog built with engines. Presently stored on the ramp waiting first flight, see link below :

This backlog will also create delivery delays for the 321Neo.
Airbus has pushed back DL's first delivery until late July 2020.
When was DL originally scheduled to get its first?
