Certain routes will open and close as the storms move around and that difference can be as little as 10 minutes. It was a 30+ minute difference in take-off time so its certainly possible that the route WN is taking wasn't available when AA took off.

And that pattern have been stable for years. Is it because of the approach in HND or to avoid the alps? I have always been curious about that.
