My partner and I are on DL 81 today after being cancelled on DL 141 yesterday to JFK. Now 81 is delayed due to a maintenance problem and we are experiencing continued delays.
My question revolves around the crew time out we may experience. Our original departure time was 10:40am and is now pushed to 6:00pm. They say the crew is OK for now but how long can they go? Will they be able to "rest" until the flight dispatches and the mx is taken care of?
Also, if anybody at DL is watching this, what is the mechanical problem? They say we are waiting on a part to arrive from AMS but they are driving it over. Very frustrating not to know.
