Hi,

A quick question on AA's midday flight from BOS-SJU last Saturday, December 20, the morning after a huge snowstorm. AA's flight was scheduled to depart at 11:40ish and didn't take off until more than 24 hours later. I would assume the weather, except that other flights during the day took off without a problem. I apologize for being unable to provide the flight number, all I know is the departure time. Thanks!

If one assumes your question is: why was it so late? The answer is that no qualified & legal to fly first officers could get to the airport that day. The originally scheduled FO flew the three-leg trip the next day, but with three different Captains as the original CA went illegal after the BOS-SJU leg.... due to wx delays.

Thanks for the information! I forgot to factor in the weather's effect on crew rest/ability to get to the airport.
