The captain came on and said the delay was due to construction at PDX and there was only 1 runway available. She said he sounded like he didn't believe this explanation but had to say it.
It was strange to watch FlightAware after the push back for about 10 minutes it was "on time" but then a 50 minute delay was showing up.
Does anyone know why or was the delay actually due to construction.
