Question Can anyone tell me where the plane for #1661 originates?

I have been following this flight for several weeks now... it's on-time history has got to be one of the worst....anywhere from 30- 120 minutes late nearly everyday.... it starts in DFW and ends in SEA...but I was wondering if someone can tell me where this plane comes in to DFW from to always make it so late.....

Looked on flight aware and flight view and it is not showing flight number 1661 for the past few days. Is it mainline or AE? I think it could come from anywhere and land at DFW. Perhaps it was late at the start of the day and has been late on the remainder of its schedule?

Yeah, that was a typo on my part. I meant AE, not UX. Didn't find anything about AA 1661.

I have to ask. What keyboard are you on where the U and the AE are anywhere near each other.
