Just trying to satisfy my curiosity monkey here.....I assume that airlines' delay codes vary from airline to airline.
Delta, and all Delta Connection flights, use the same delay codes, but I assume that a similarly delayed flight on another carrier would be coded differently?
Aircraft Maintenance: 03A
Crew late from late inbnd flight: 08J
ATC enroute or at destination: 14B
and so on (there are hundreds of codes...)

Quoting LN-MOW (Reply 1): Most airlines use the IATA standard as base for their delay codes. Most use the numerical codes, but some prefer the alphabetical.
Well, some of those explanations look similar, but Delta's codes are much more specific. There are delay code grounds (01-22) and then there are sub-groups.
For example, group 08 is pilot delays:
08B - Crew scheduling error
08F - Late Check-in
08J - Crew late from delayed inbnd flight
08M - Late completion of manifest and/or checklist
