That's right, our new 321-211 has been delivered. It is ship 193 and is currently in the hangar in PIT.
It has the new CFM engines (which it's exhaust pipe looks like an E-190's with the chevrons), all new leather interior, and no IFE and is currently undergoing PRE-OP's and having all coach ovens removed.
Rumor is it is supposed to be in scheduled service Thursday.

Quoting JetboyTWA (Reply 1): Why would it be ordered and delivered with ovens if they're only to be removed right away?
Most probably they decided to remove the ovens from all the airbus 32x fleet, aswell as all the IFE. This in order to save weight and as a result saving fuel.
Airlines do anything to save cost at the moment.
