AA86 October 12

Does anyone know why AA86 ORD-LHR is delayed by nearly four hours today? All they are saying in the Flagship lounge is a problem with a crew member, but I can't believe they don't have hot standby crew at a major hub.

Looks like they are awaiting a First Officer. Maybe the FO originally scheduled fell ill?

Just a guess that while there indeed are some standby crew available at a hub, they probably don't have a surplus 777 certified FOs around.
