I understand why they sent an A321 now, Nashville is one of Delta's focus cities for the A321, it would make sense to send a plane that can actually be used for a later flight out of Nashville rather than have to fly back to Atlanta empty afterward.
I really don't understand why they sent an A321 to replace a 717, but I'm not complaining it must have been seen as a bonus to these passengers; it sure would be enough compensation for me.
