Weather delays flight nearly two hours.

Plane at our gate is late pushing back, furthering delay.

Passengers are loaded in time for new official departure time, but luggage is still being loaded. Another 20-minute delay.

Now we have a maintenance issue—a spring on one of the wings—that needs to be replaced. Part has to be located and installed. Mechanic: “Shouldn’t take long,” but as you’d expect, no real timetable.

Now I’m just waiting for the flight crew to time out. 🙄
