    Yes, it is. "A320 family" = A318, A319, A320 and A321. "A320neo family" = A319neo, A320neo and A321neo (there is no A318neo).

    One of their two 321's has been grounded for the time being. The other is not affected by the EAD.

    Reuters says Airbus has stopped test flights as well as deliveries of the PW1100-powered A320neo variant for the time being. Airlines and lessors have already been consulted, the report said, adding that new deliveries could be delayed by as much as six months.

    As of February 12, ch-aviation research shows the following airlines have grounded A320/321neo aircraft: Air Astana (one A321neo), Air China (three A320neo), Hawaiian Airlines (one A321neo), HK Express (one A320neo), Indigo (three A320neo), LATAM Airlines (two A320neo), Lufthansa (one A320neo), Sichuan Airlines (three A320neo), Spirit Airlines (one A320neo), Tianjin Airlines (two A320neo), VietJetAir (one A321neo), Volaris (one A320neo), and West Air (China) (one A320neo).

    Still, this might mean other NEO's in these fleets are operating non-ETOPS routes with one of the affected engines and thus at a heightened risk of in-flight engine shutdown.

    Sounds like that's thirteen more airlines to add to your no-fly list.

    They've got 9 on order, most of which are scheduled for delivery before July. My guess is they'll be very motivated to agree with you about the (apparently contradictory) para 3 of the EAD.
