The Cabin Flex layout is an option today, but is set to become standard on the A321neo “around 2020”, Airbus adds.

Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that Turkish has ordered 92 A321neo ACFs, which will be powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1100G geared turbofans.

The first aircraft was delivered from Airbus's German assembly line in Hamburg, the airframer notes.
