What Is Wrong With AA 460 Today?

Tue Feb 21, 2012 3:00 pm

My brother is on this flight. They boarded the flight at 6am and they are sitting inside the aircraft at the gate for 4 hours now. They said the copilot was delayed 2 hours. Then after 2 hours, they are saying mechanical problem. 4 hours now, WOW!

Called out a reserve FO at 03:18am (as he went "on-duty").
Acft departed the gate at 08:32am but returned at 09:00am due to an air conditioning issue. Acft has a recent history of repeat write-ups for A/C temp control issues (either full hot or full cold) so the plane was taken out of service and no replacement acft was available.

Good luck to your brother. AA needs those new planes ASAP even if only for publicity.
