f86sabre, what’s up with Delta maintenance? On our way to Hawaii the A330-300 we were supposed to take from Minneapolis had some kind of issue that led to us getting a new plane (after a 2 hour delay). Then on the return my brother’s flight from Honolulu to LA was the recipient of a new plane after a 5 hour delay due to engine issues on the original aircraft’s previous leg. As if that wasn’t enough, my connecting flight from Atlanta to Wichita was delayed 2 hours because our MD-88 needed a part replaced for dispatch.

Too many delays, not enough sleep, and just enough jet-lag to leave me pretty exhausted this morning. Back to work, where I will probably continue to have no work to do...
