There are a lot of erroneous assumptions in your post.
For starters, have a look at the FAA NSP certified devices list. Have a look below.
For example, jetBlue has no simulators in FLL, their entire training center is in MCO.

Re: Rumor: DL looking to trade 717s for 737 Max

This is all fascinating, but Delta has precisely zero Max simulators, and it takes months to build, ship, and certify a device. Boeing has their own simulators now, along with some airlines, but induction of 40+ white tails "overnight" will not be without its logistical challenges.
