Was supposed to fly DCA-STL last night (5-July) on an Eagle CRJ700. My flight was cancelled, as well as the flight before.

I inquired why and was told by ticket desk that the aircraft suffered "bad damage" in flight. That's all I could garner, but it sounds like it will be out for a while. Figured I would share and look for more info if anyone has.

Any for anyone curious, since I have surgery in STL, I politely demanded and was rebooked on US early this morning DCA-CLT-STL with a 2am wake-up.

Are you sure it wasn't somehow related to damages possibly sustained from the storms that passed through the region a few days ago?

Yes ... flight was on a STL-DCA-STL-DCA-STL rotation and was damaged in-flight on the STL-DCA leg earlier that morning, according to ticket agent. It also could have been damaged on ground at DCA.

The second DCA-STL-DCA turn was posted as heavily delayed, then cancelled last minute, followed by mine cancelling as well.

FOD damage to one of the nose wheel doors. Sorry man. Good luck with your surgery.

The aircraft routing for a/c 537 on July 5 was: MSY-ORD-DCA when the damage was discovered to the aft nose gear door. The aircraft left DCA on Jul 6 back to ORD under a special ferry permit and is scheduled for a 9:30 am departure to EWR on Jul 7.

What probably happened was when a/c 537 arrived in DCA, it either was scheduled to go back to ORD or it may have been scheduled to stay and do the DCA-STL routing. Once the damage was discovered, the DCA-STL-DCA aircraft a/c 525 was probably swapped to operate the DCA-ORD flight, leaving no aircraft available to fly to STL.
