Airbus made several performance upgrades to A321s. It's possible some of the LUS A321s were built before the upgrades became available.

What I see is:
1) Delta had no obligation to transport those students. But DL made it their responsibility.
2) Delta's agents thought outside the box to accommodate the group
3) Weather impacts...

AA started LAX-SYD with a 77W, then downgauaged to a 789. UA recently reduced frequency on LAX-SYD and IAH-SYD. These reductions are signs of overcapacity.
