I have no idea how common this is, but it did happen to me about maybe three flights ago. Boarded from DCA gate 35X, sat in plane for a while because they "could not find working starter cart", no AC. Deplaned by bus after about half an hour on hot plane. Sat around in terminal for an hour, reboarded, taxied out to tarmac in hot plane, sat for about an hour, returned to gate due to "hydraulics problem" and deplaned via bus. Sat around in terminal for an hour or so until AA cancelled flight. Hey, the AC on the multiple bus rides worked great, so AA must be doing something right!
