Its an Airbus so it won't make headlines like a inflight shutdown on a 788...
When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

It was a bird so it wasn't Airbus fault, not like the engine failed halfway through the Atlantic....

Yes . Jetblue's first A321 has suffered an engine fire (failure) on take off roll in SJU . The aircraft had to be evacuated .

B6 704 (SJU-JFK), a321, blew an engine on takeoff. Kudos to the crew, only 3 injured during the evac.

It seems pretty rare for an evacuation NOT to involve injuries. I wonder if there's some way to redesign the slides to make them safer while still allowing for a quick evacuation.

It looks like there is still fire coming from it even when the fire fighters in action.

Why the "Mint fleet" 321 was operating that flight?
Itsn't all those Mint 321 fly the transcontential exclusively?

Quoting davidho1985 (Reply 9):

This isn't a "Mint" configured A321, this is a "all core" (all economy) A321 which seats to about 190 pax. "Mint" is configured up to @165 or so. 16 Mint, 140 in the back. They use the All core A321's for high density routes, ie JFK-SJU/FLL/SDQ/AUA/BGI/NAS/LAS to name a few off the top of my head. Right now they have @7 Mint A321 for LAX, going to go upto 11 when SFO Mint service starts in a couple months, and about another 7 or so all core A321's doing high density routes from NYC. In short the Mint A321 is a seperate dedicated fleet of @11 or 12 they will use specifically for JFK-LAX/SFO..(For now..rumor is they will start Mint for Transcon LAX/SFO from Boston soon as well.)
