A delivery before the end of the year is possible if it flies to XFW before the end of August. Assuming 12 weeks assembly in TLS, it will have to fly directly after roll out to XFW. I doubt that will happen.

With MSN151's breathtaking record of 9 weeks for OF now, I would even say that a ferry flight by mid-September could still leave almost one month and a half for flight tests before the end of the year, doable
Though (same with MSN167,MSN160), it depends on what Airbus and the customer plans are, and indeed MSN173 might serve bigger the fleet to increase the route to SIN early February...
