Notwithstanding what Reuters say, I'd suggest that if and when Airbus go ahead with the A321XLR, it will be anything but a quiet launch.

Whether that's imminent is anyone's guess - with the Max issues distracting Boeing from any early announcement on the MMA/NMA, there's no pressure on Airbus to act particularly quickly.
