We should expect at least 624, 12*52, A320 family frames to be produced in 2018. Sill below 56 a month, 16TLS + 32XFW + 4BFM + 4TSN = 56. I expect the fourth line in XFW not being fully ramped up yet. Add some of the gliders standing around and it could be 650. This number can easily be higher, XFW could reach full production rate and TSN start ramping to five, that would mean rate 57 frames a month sometime next year, with rate 52 at the beginning of the year.
Add 90 A350, 66 A330, 12 A380.
That would make it 818 frames to be delivered next year.

A different view of the chopping area (Belfast Apron) at Kemble, UK on the 10th Jan 2018.
Edit - listing of fairly complete frames in the photo - TF-AAE B747 (No Engines) G-CELI and CELZ B737s (No Engines and No Tails) G-CELW B737 (No Engines) TU-TSN A319 (No Engines) N176GT B777 (No Engines) F-GLZH A340 (No Engines) - Now being chopped up
