Is it odd that a 1 hour maintenance delay would be posted at 5a for a flight departing 10 hours later? When I clicked on "Where is this aircraft coming from" it shows it arrived from LHR yesterday at 3p.

Any idea what this could be about? Am I safer doing SDC to flight departing 4:56p? Would really prefer to keep the prime seat I have on the current flight, but concerned that this could be a bigger issue that ultimately results in a cancellation with a middle seat on an undetermined later flight.
