in 2020, the first frame returned from paint on Feb 25.
2021 is for now one week ahead.
L/N 1558 was returned at Feb 25th 2020 and was scheduled to be delivered to ABC at Feb 28th 2020. What happened next, we all know !
L/N 1563, N626UP is indeed returned one week earlier, but I doubt that it will be delivered very soon. For UPS this is the after peak low season.
IMO, it's to early to draw conclusions yet. Perhaps we can notice a (slight) assembly increase when the next (L/N 1564, N627UP) will roll-out.
