Flight Delayed Waiting on Plane that Arrived 12 Hours Ago?

So, I am in GSP waiting on the plane from EWR. My flight is delayed 2 hours waiting on the inbound. The Inbound Flight CO 2295 is delayed 2 hours waiting on the inbound from ORD.

Here's the issue - CO 2994 arrived YESTERDAY at EWR at 7:00 PM. Therefore, the late arriving plane actually arrived just over 12 hours ago. So, what's the real reason?

Most likely they switched equipment and didnt update system or equipment went mechanical and it was mis coded in the system. When your aircraft arrives, check the ship number on CO.com vs actual ship number and that may give you some insight into the issue!

Tracking the tail number and talking to the agent at check-in, after the plane landed at EWR, it went to SAV last night. Then SAV - EWR this morning as scheduled.

But, SAV - EWR is scheduled to arrive EWR at 8:47 AM, and CO 2295 is scheduled to depart EWR at 7:29 AM, so obviously something else is/was amiss. Shenanigans? - for those still taking a drink when that word is posted.

Tail number tip solved one issue, but now I'm stuck as to the "reall reason".

Just to further add, CO 2295 was cancelled Tuesday for the snow (understandable), and was almost two hours late yesterday "waiting on crew". Now almost two hours late today for some reason. Obviously, I'll watch this flight because I fly to GSP 3-4 times per year.
