Since my November AA830 scheduled equipment is a 787, maybe it's the same now (too lazy to look) and coming from overseas, and international to domestic transfers take more time?
In any case, something is happening regularly (46% of the time) causing a two hour delay and that can't always be weather or mechanical.
A bunch of things: American Airlines is currently in a dispute with their mechanics union, and they have accused them of an illegal work slowdown. American is also currently down quite a few Aircrafts due to their inability to operate the Boeing 737 max eight. Also, Weather hasn’t really been on American Airlines’ side this summer in several hubs, causing a domino effect of delays.
