Well-well-well, it becomes even more intriguing.
So, I would like to put it clearly.
1. MSN 6464 was supposed to be A319neo/PW flight test article
2. MSN 6620 was initially planned to be A319neo/CFM flight test article
3. MSN 6464 was converted to be an A319neo/CFM flight test article
4. MSN 6620 is now cancelled
That would be correct.So, the A319neo/CFM will get its type certificate around mid-2018. And then maybe, just maybe. MSN 646 will be converted back to an A319neo/PW flight test article.
Earlier this year Airbus stated the P&W A319neo is due to follow after the CFM variant. That is all we know for the moment.
CFM certification may arrive earlier than mid-2018 BTW.Questions:
1. When will the first A319neo/CFM enter into service after its certification?
2. When will the A319neo/PW be certified?
So, what's the plan?
This is even more interesting than I initially thought.
I have no proper answer on both questions.

These are the most comprehensive changes to the A321 since it was first developed in 1992. Significant differences compared to the existing A321 are a new arrangement of the passenger doors and modernisation of the emergency exit doors in the central section. Furthermore, optional additional fuel tanks can be integrated into the fuselage in order to extend the aircraft’s range. For example, airline companies using the A321neo ACF will be able to fly coast to coast across the US in the future. This model will also offer on-board internet access right from the first aircraft. All of the changes were undertaken using state-of-the-art 3D construction tools.

Indeed the MSN for this reconfigured A321 is MSN 7877. FAL start should happen end of this month.

Do we know first flight and how long the certification process will last?
What engines will be fitted -the higher power P&W engines?
Will this a/c be tested with the 3 ACT's necessary for (LR) transatlantic operations?

Toulouse; FAL1 & FAL2 (FAL 2 is the one wide the door in the middle).
Hamburg FAL 3 & FAL 4 (just opened). And Tianjin FAL and Mobile FAL.
Is it true that the outfitting hangars in Hamburg are called Hamburg FAL 1 & 2? Or do they have another name.
Does Hamburg FAL3 have the highest production rate at this moment? ~22.
With Tianjin @4 and Mobile @3, and total 50, Toulouse produces ~20 (on FAL1 & 2)?
I looked on Terraserver, the stowed A320NEO situation looks worse then on the images posted here. Hamburg; Toulouse.

What are the reasons behind the deletion of door L2? What is the consensus of opinion as to whether it is a good idea safety wise? It must also slow down boarding and turn-around too.
A ditching such as the Hudson incident, where all the rear doors are unusable for example. The new L2 behind the wing, would also be below the waterline.
Is the starboard side the same?
