JQ use the code 32N to denote the 230 seat variant of the A321. At a guess I would say from November the reconfiguration will be complete on all of the A321 hence they have begun to load the code to their schedule

I don’t think that’s the case, as the above info indicates it would be a poor utilisation of aircraft for a start, while the flights scheduled are indicative of a new type being trialled.
The deferment of neo deliveries was for nine months from the end of 2017 so they are due around now to begin.

That is the case...I have just looked in the booking system, JQ operates a daily service MEL-TSV and starting 2 NOV is it three times a week operated by aircraft code 32N...which has 230 seats...its just an A321. If they were to take a NEO any time soon I highly doubt they would differentiate it from the standard A320 as it has the same capacity of 186 I believe....

Thereís also nothing anywhere - no forum chatter, nothing in any lists - to suggest anything is currently in production for JQ. Not a single aircraft of any type.
