Continental's B738 didn't have such a great day today (22DEC). On the night of 21DEC, Ship #229 arrived to LAX at 2236 only twenty minutes late. What happened this morning that caused it's three hour delay in Los Angeles?
Los Angeles, CA (LAX)
Scheduled: 7:25 AM
Actual: 10:30 AM

You wanna give a flight number? Based on the time and ship number I can only guess you're referring to 1403 to EWR...
Couple thoughts spring to mind... It's Newark...and there's some nasty weather out there. It seems Newark sees delays that can quickly become hours when there's more than 3 clouds in the sky... (The only time I've not had a flight that was in some way related to Newark [to, from, or waiting on an aircraft from] delayed was when I needed it to be )
Then there's the number 2 most likely reason I've ever been delayed in on CO in LAX (though, admittedly, never more than 90 miuntes or so, and always a 757-300, never a 738) is a maintenance issue that needed to be addressed during the turn as CO has MX ops at LAX.
In the event that either of those are not the case, the seatmap shows that the flght went out 100% full... could have been waiting for inbound connetions or protecting pax on other flights that cancelled for whatever reasons (KNX here in LA was reporting 6-8 hour reboooking lines for AS, but I think that was at SEA not LAX)

Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot the flight number. But, you are correct.. Well the flight didn't leave LAX for three hours and I think I could have looked at EWR's weather wrong, but it said it was partly cloudy...
