I saw todays 3:30pm flight from JAX-ATL was on a 757-300, I was just curious has DL sent 753's into JAX before? because I can't recall ever seeing a 753 before in JAX. Do you think they will continue sending them into JAX?

ATL-JAX is scheduled with 757-200s.
No particular 757 type is necessarily scheduled for this route, however it will commonly the 75Ns and/or 757 variants that do not have AVOD / IFE but ultimately aircraft scheduling will dictate what aircraft is assigned to a route. DL "attempts" to put the AVOD / IFE equipped aircraft on the longer routes where it is more of a differentiator.
A route like ATL-JAX is subject to substitutions since it is very easy to substitute on a short and relatively quick turn. Getting the most appropriate type of aircraft / type of 757 is more important on ATL-LAX than it is ATL-JAX.
The 757-300, like the 767s are not scheduled into JAX but will and can show-up on a turn, based demand and aircraft availability in ATL.
