The 2018 delivery number is 33.
Airbus is only opening one line in Mobile and wants to expand the facility in Canada. There was talk on a local news station about mobile doing finishing of aircraft.

That was also my understanding.
"Completion" (finishing?) work on some Mirabel made A220s would start in Mobile as early as this summer. Not really sure of the exact magnitude of the work to be performed.

Separately, construction work of the "single" Mobile FAL should start very soon - like in a week or two. A win - win situation for everyone.
