AA 2479 - Why So Chronically Late?

As I'll be flying on AA 2479 DFW-LAX next week before connecting to SQ 29 LAX-TPE-SIN, I've been following the flight lately. In the past week, AA 2479 has been chronically late -- yesterday by more than 4 hours. There haven't been serious weather events in Dallas or LA, and the other DFW-LAX flights have generally been on time.

What's behind these chronic delays on 2479? It's flown on a 738, not an aging aircraft. I'm a bit concerned as to making my interline connection ... should I fly stand-by on an earlier DFW departure?


"Lose" is not spelled with two o's!!!!

Hi Ssides!

Yesterdays flight was delayed due weather in Dallas-the ramp was closed
and they could not load cargo

21 August was just 8 mins late off

Cheers!
Tony
