They're probably busy debating on what they can give up in their contract to get more flying for them at the expense of other carriers.

Weather either in CLT or enroute to CLT caused ALOT of flights to be gate held.
PSA flight 5196 from MLB to CLT was scheduled to depart @ 305pm but actually left @ 815pm.

In the case of PSA 5130, ATC probably told them they would be held somewhere down the coast towards CLT.
So they probably elected to return to PWM to wait it out.

Messy messy weather last night in the mid-atlantic and north east courtesy of Bill.

We had a tree blown to bits by a cloud to ground hit 100 feet from the house and registered about 3 inches of rain in about 5 hours.

Then why not divert to a US/AA hub/larger city for better customer support? since it was wx at the destination they could have easily went to PHL,JFK, LGA, DCA
