Welcome to my world... After a dozen A220 flights, I had my first A220 flight without delay! People jumping on me for saying this plane does not have finesse. The amount of broken things that require service is ridiculous. All my delays were mechanical. Plus, the IFE's USB port is broken, audio jack is not working... There are quite a few quality issues.

During my recent ride from SEA, we had very long taxi time, so the captain keep spooling up and down the engine, so we kept hearing the loud orca mating sound, over and over and over again. It was my seatmate's first A220 flight, and she asked if the engine is OK or if we are having a mechanical issue.
