BYU took a DL A321 PVU-BOI and return. It appears that the aircraft positioned from MSP, and the return flight then headed out to ATL. So MSP-PVU-BOI and BOI-PVU-ATL. It's easy to assume that DL would have rotated an aircraft from nearby SLC. But it doesn't always work that way. https://flightaware....
