FR24 tends to fudge the data. Descent rate from cruise alt varied from -5000fpm to -2500fpm. Higher descent rate at higher altitude.

MSN - Manufacturers Serial Number. This was the 147h A320 manufactured. Equivalent to chassis number in car. Not really that significant information as age of airliner has been published already. However it is probably one of the older A320s still flying. Operator has excellent safety record though and all commercial aircraft are stripped back to basics every 4 years and rebuilt.
